Ideas for Egypt Projects

If you're stuck on ideas for school projects, then look no further. Kidzworld has come up with a couple of cool ideas for Egypt projects that you can make for your history class - or just for fun!

Egypt Projects - The Pyramid

Back in ancient times, the Egyptians built pyramids out of huge blocks of stones. For this fun project, you won't have to worry about rocks, or even pebbles. In fact, you can even eat this pyramid while you make it! You'll need about 220 sugar cubes, so raid your mom's kitchen cupboard for a new package.

  • Glue one side of a sugar cube onto a big piece of cardboard. Make a square of 10 cubes across and 10 cubes down.
  • Make a second layer of 9 cubes, but glue this row about two cm in from the first row.
  • Continue these steps, using eight cubes, then seven and so on until you reach the top.
  • Once you're done with the glue, you can paint your pyramid!

Egypt Projects - The Mummy

Ancient Egyptians believed that when you died, your soul went to the underworld to be judged by Osiris, Lord of the Underworld. If he judged you to have been a good person, then your soul would re-unite with your body and you would live in eternal paradise. But in order for your soul to recognize your body, you had to look the way you had while you were alive, which is why corpses were mummified. Now that you know why bodies were mummifed, you can make your own mummy - but instead of wrapping your little brother in sheets, try using a Barbie doll.

  • Take the doll and wrap it in cloth strips until it's completely covered. You may want to start at the feet and work your way up to the head.
  • Insert amulets (special charms) between linen wrappings. You can use anything from jewelry to coins.
  • For bonus points, make a sarcophagus (coffin) out of a cardboard box and decorate it with hieroglyphics.

Egypt Projects - The Hieroglyphic Alphabet

Another fun project idea can be done by using hieroglyphics, the ancient Egyptian alphabet. You can spell your name or initial your mummy, but better yet, try going one step further. Translate a short phrase into pictures, and paint it onto a big poster board. This is a great opportunity for you to learn about the symbolism used in Egyptian art and the alphabet.

Trump doesn't deserve the title president. Has anyone but me saw him mock a disabled reporter? Anyone else seen him curse like a million times. Does He ever think about the children listening? Does he not think they now what "beep" means? We aren't stupid Trump!!
