Egyptian Wow Day

22 Nov 2015

EGYPTIAN WOW DAY

MUMMIFICATION

The process involved to create a mummy properly can take up to 70 days. It is not only a physical procedure but the Ancient Egyptians also involved their religious beliefs in the right way to create a mummy. 

 
We dressed up as mummies.
Can you find the scarab beetle?

 
 
We mummified our own soft toys.
Luckily it didn't take us 70 days...
 
    
             
     
     
  
 Egyptian Boats 
Early Egyptians learned to make small boats out of the papyrus plant. They were easy to construct and worked well for fishing and short trips. Most of the papyrus boats were small and were steered with oars and poles. The typical boat was long and thin and the ends came to a point that stuck out of the water. 
 
 
 
HIEROGLYPHICS
The Egyptian writing called hieroglyphics used pictures to represent different objects, actions, sound or ideas. There were more than 700 hieroglyphs. Some pictures stood for whole words.
 
 
    
    
     
    
        

TUTANKHAMUN  
 The reason that Tutankhamun is so well known today is that his tomb, containing fabulous treasures, was found early this century (1922) by British archaeologists Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon.
 
    
    
      
 
JEWELLERY
The most common and iconic ornament of ancient Egypt was the wide collar necklace. The main materials used to craft Egyptian jewellery were copper and gold. More lavish Egyptian jewellery was inlaid with various gems and semiprecious stones.
 
    
   

SARCOPHAGUS
A sarcophagus is a carved, usually a stone container that usually houses a coffin and an Egyptian mummy.
 
    
    
    
       
    

      

CLOTHING 

The Egyptians wore make-up and jewel to honour the gods. Both men and women wore blue and green eyeshadow and black eyeliner.
 
  
 
                                         
 
 FOOD

Our favourite food was the grapes and the least favourite was the stuffed vine leaves.
