Learning about Ancient Egypt!

I must say, the chapters on Ancient Egypt in our Winter Promise Hideaways in History curriculum were big hits with the kids!

We learned all about the Egyptians' early paper making, which they did by weaving together flattened riverbed reeds. G didn't want to stop this project!

We also "mummified" some of our favorite stuffed animal friends....

...and read all about what was involved in the mummification process. (One word: Yuck.)

Last but not least, Ken helped the kids construct a giant pyramid out of boxes. Not only do stuffed animals enjoy this hideaway, but Mittens the cat does, too...
