Build a Pyramid Workshop

The children enjoyed an extremely interesting workshop on Monday as part of their learning on Ancient Egypt. During the workshop, the children helped an Egyptian explorer assemble an incredible giant model of the King’s Pyramid at Giza. We discovered where the passages lead, and explored the hidden chambers and escape tunnels. We also examined an absolutely beautiful model of the temple complex that sat next to the pyramid. Once this was complete, we turned to the mummification process. Using a specially designed mannequin and sarcophagus, we prepared the body for mummification, removed organs, and placed them in real canopic jars. We then took it in turns to wrap the mummy while listening to a number of incredible Egyptian myths. A fascinating workshop, full of secrets, stories, and surprises!
