We’re the pyramids built by slaves?
Today we were historians, gathering as much evidence as we could to help is to form an opinion about whether the pyramids were built by slaves or not. We each had some information that we had to share with others, recording our ever changing thoughts as we rotated around the classroom, talking to our classmates.
Howard Carter’s Discovery
Today, we all played the role of Howard Carter on the day he discovered the tomb of Tutankhamen!
Today, we carried out lots of activities to start gathering information about our topic “The Ancient Egyptians”. First we had to write down everything we already knew about the topic using a picture prompt. We then watched a video introducing the topic and used it to add to our information record. Next, we went into the woodland and played “Information Run” in which we took turns in finding clues hidden in the trees to take back and share with our group.
In order to place the Ancient Egyptians in a timeline, we tried to order events in history that we have learnt about in the past and finally we played “Spot The Errors” ina picture of Ancient Egyptian life. What a busy day!
