Excellent Tutor led Activity-Learning all about Ancient Egypt and Hieroglyphics!
Our home-schooled students have been learning all about Ancient Egypt and Hieroglyphics.
Hieroglyphs is an ancient Egyptian way of writing that uses pictures instead of letters.
The students had a lot of fun working on the decoding task activity.
Students were asked to write a given word in hieroglyphs on the whiteboard and then discuss how different or similar it is to writing in English.
In History, the students have also been discovering facts about Egyptian Pyramids.
The students have been exploring questions like:
What are pyramids made from?
When were the pyramids finished and how long they took to build?
What are the most famous pyramids etc
