Egyptian Animals






I really do love teaching about Ancient Egypt! Here are a few of the projects we completed with a unit on Egyptian art. Egyptian cats were made by thrid graders with paints and pastels with hieroglyphic backgrounds. The blue hippos are my favorite. There is an adorable book that goes along with the hippo and the kids love to learn about these tiny works of art from Ancient Egypt. The falcons were painted and glittered, then formed to 3D. And the scarab beetles were made from various colors of model magic! All of the projects were a lot of fun and very successful!

  1. Hi Megan,
    I was wondering if you could tell me the name of the book that goes along with William. I want to do an Egyptian unit with my 2nd graders soon. Thanks!
