So right now we're continuing to move through history while doing some long-term projects on Egypt. Pepper is going to be doing History Pockets Ancient Civilizations, the Egypt pocket. Daisy is making a travel brochure about Ancient Egypt (you might want to sign up for her tour package once you see it!)
We made mummified oranges and a green pepper from Neferchichi.com. There is tons to explore here if you are studying Ancient Egypt. We haven't even begun to scratch the surface of the resources here.
Anyway, here they sprinkling natron over the dead Pharaoh Pepperiti.
Daisy did some Egyptian math --most gladly, I may add. She was thrilled to take a break from her regular math and even though there was some research involved, she enjoyed it. Most of it was just the right level for her--just challenging enough. A few I had to help her with. I printed out the pages, rather than having her fill them in online. The links to the "answers" are on the above page, below the links to the problems.
Pepper attempted some Egyptian wall art from Artistic Pursuits I today, but became frustrated. Not sure if she'll continue with it or not.
And now we're going on a field trip/picnic to look at a local archaeological dig.
