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!
