Inquiry Learning Ancient Egypt

This week has been one of discovery.
Each group this week has been learning about what happened to an Egyptian pharaoh after he or she died.
Group 3 made sarcophagus’s and researched information about the gods who helped the pharaoh get to the afterlife. They explored what hieroglyphics were and wrote their own messages on the sarcophagus they had made.
Group 4 learnt bout Tutankhamen and all the items which were found in his tomb. They then made amazing masks.
Group 5 made mummies. They used toilet paper and barbie dolls to create their mummy. They then learnt about what a sarcophagus was and made the lid of a sarcophagus.
