Pyramids & Mummies

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Tuesday, June 22, 2010 at 10:10 AM

I wrapped some mummies in my house this morning.

We have been investigating pyramids and the ancient civilization of Egypt.  For some reason the mummification was interesting to my boys.



I used two rolls of toilet paper and some tape here and there.  Maggie Beth was interested in getting wrapped as a mummy too, but as I started to roll her she was not interested anymore.

Hezekiah also built the Sphinx and a pyramid yesterday.  We learned the different types of pyramids from http://www.seaworld.org/fun-zone/fun-guides/egypt/index.htm, they also have hieroglyphics and a maze.  We also found an adventure site that was awesome it is called the Egyptian tomb adventure by the National museums of Scotland http://www.nms.ac.uk/education__activities/kids_only/egyptian_tomb_adventure.aspx.  The boys really loved this site.  We played it together last night and learned a lot of neat things about the canopic jars.  Tomorrow we plan on making two types of pyramids a step and a great pyramid.
