Egyptian studies

As part of Africa, we have focused on Egypt and here are some of the fun things we have done!
We found Egypt on our new globe!
We looked at papyrus which the Egyptians used as paper.  On the papyrus was a scene from Egypt showing hieroglyphics.
We then stamped our names with the hieroglyphic stamps. 
In the afternoon, we read books about Egypt.  We talked about the pyramids.
Using our geometric solids, we found the pyramid and discussed the shape.  Using our equilateral triangle we used our cutting skills to make our own pyramids.
We have also had some coloring work of a pharaoh.
Egypt has been very fun!  We hope to visit Northern Africa again next year!
