Giant mummy cases on brown Kraft paper. Including hieroglyphics is required. They are outlined in black Sharpie, colored with oil pastels, and then we've added gold paint and gold contact paper, mostly for hands and faces. The kids work in pairs, tracing the body of the smaller member of the pair, and working together to decide what the hieroglyphics will say.
"Egyptian Portraits" Students studied the ancient civilization of Egypt and created a historical profile of themselves. A cartouche of their name was created using the hieroglyphic alphabet. The background was sponge painted first to create the wall surface. Black sharpies and tempera paint were used to add the color. This lesson was designed and taught by Miss Wenzel.
