Making a Cartouche

 

A cartouche is a name plate. It’s usually oval with your name written in the middle of it. A cartouche is attached to your coffin.

The ancient Egyptians wanted to make sure that their two souls – the Ba and the Ka – could find their way back to their tomb at night, after they died. No one wanted their Ba or Ka to get lost. A cartouche made it very easy for a Ba and Ka to find their way home.

A cartouche was meant to protect against evil spirits both in this life and the afterlife.

Fraction Games

Definition of a Fraction: A fraction is part of a whole. For example: One piece of pizza is part of the whole pizza. If the pizza is cut into four equal pieces, each piece is 1/4 of the pizza. (One of four pieces). Two pieces would be 2/4 (2 pieces). And three pieces of pizza would be 3/4 (3 pieces out of 4 pieces.)

Here are some games you can play to improve your fractions knowledge.

8, 12, 16, _, _, _​ Rule:
2. 19, 28, 37, _, _, _ ​Rule:
3. 33, 27, 21, _, _, _ ​Rule:
4. 13, 25, 37, _, _, _​ Rule:
5. 100, 96, 92, _, _, Rule:
6. 43, 38, 33, _, _, _ ​Rule:
7. 74, 82, 90, _, _, _​Rule:
8. 62, 65, 68, _, _, _​Rule:
9. 2, 20, 38, _, _, _​ Rule:
