This week we began by studying the ancient Egyptian civilization. Here are some photo highlights of what the kids did this week. It was a great week, and I'm amazed at what we accomplished, and all the arts and crafts we did!
Decorating our notebook covers, while pretending to be pirates, for some reason...
K LOVES math... who knew?
Writing With Ease copywork.
We made Egyptian paddle dolls. This was a big hit, and still is.
Keeping it real. The house after school on Wednesday...
L's note-booking activity after our history readings.
The obligatory rolling up with toilet paper as a mummy. : )
We made salt maps to learn about geographic terms like cliffs, peninsulas, mountain ranges, deltas, and more.
Then we celebrated finishing our first week of school by having donuts today! :)
And even I learned a few things...
-Did you know that Egyptians mostly all, men and women alike, shaved their heads and wore wigs due to the extreme heat?
-Did you know Egyptian farmers trained monkeys to climb up trees and throw down fruit to them?
This was a great week, a much better week than I could have envisioned. The kids loved it and it went really smoothly. Loving it....
