Spring: Ancient Egypt
We will find out how long ago the Ancient Egyptians were around and why the river Nile was so important to Egypt and its people. Also, we will find out how the different pyramids were constructed. Furthermore, we will discover what the Ancient Egyptians believe about life after death. The children will continue to learn about the important work of archaeologists and will try to understand what artefacts can tell us about the past. They will handle artefacts and research the answers to some important questions such as:
· Who was Tutankhamen and why were pharaohs important?
· What are hieroglyphics?
· Who were the Egyptian gods and goddesses?
· What is the process of mummification?
