This half term we have been looking at key questions to deepen our understanding of the history of Ancient Egypt. Questions: How can we recreate the wonders of Ancient Egypt? How can you recreate the wonder of the pyramids?
During history, we have been discussing the role of an archaeologist. We found out that an Archaeology is the study of things that people made, used, and left behind. The goal of archaeology is to understand what people of the past were like and how they lived. Scientists who study archaeology are called archaeologists. After discussing this existing job, we asked the children what an archeologist would look for in Ancient Egypt. This created some great discussions and predictions. The children were then put into groups, chose one person to be an archeologist and the rest of the group had to guide them to find the hidden wonders of Egypt. They worked well as a team and discussed their findings. This lead to further learning as the children then had to research their findings and feed back to the whole class. In our findings, we found, Cleopatra, Sphinx, Pyramids of Giza and Tutankhamun.
