This week, we started our latest and last topic for the year - Temples, Tombs and Treaures!
Our entry point was a treasure hunt! Children worked in their house teams to find a series of clues which lead them to an Ancient Egyptian artifact. However, the clues were not so easy to solve - they had to crack the hieroglyphic codes using a hieroglyphic alphabet and by working together as a team. The winning team was Lanta, who was first to solve all their clues and return their canopic jar to class safely!
This week we have also learned about the Ancient Egyptian mummification process, which although wasn't perfect, it was good enough to allow us to discover mummies thousands of years after they were made! We learned some more about the canopic jars that were used in the mummification process, as well as the materials, steps, and beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians. For a bit of fun, we decided make our own mummies in a make-a-mummy challenge. Each house team worked together to wrap their mummy - the mummy with the most coverage was the winner, which again was Lanta!
