It is going to be my goal to post more of the lessons/activities I do with my kids. I have been asked by many to post some of my ideas, but I am truly so into what I do I always forget. Therefore it shall be my goal to post one a week!

Sadly this is the end of our Egypt unit, but we did so many hands on activities including:

*Building the Nile
*Papyrus paper
*Salt dough mummies
*Building our own sarcophagus
*Mummifying an apple
*Egyptian Amulets
*Paper dolls of how the Egyptians dressed

The following is our amulets. I made a PowerPoint explaining the importance of amulets. If interested in a comment below place your email below and I will forward it. After we made salt dough using 3 cups of plain flour, 1 ½ cups of fine salt, 1 cup of cold water, and 2 tbsp of vegetable oil. We mixed the ingredients, let it refrigerate for an hour, while refrigerating we talked about what we needed protection or luck for. We wrote about it and sketched an idea. Once finished we created it. We left a whole so we could string it later and wear it around our neck. I of course took them home and baked them for 2 hours at 200.
