Egyptian Art

So I posted a while ago we were starting an Egyptian art unit and a couple of classes have finished, so here is the process in pictures.  These are 4th and 5th graders mostly, but I did this project with 1st-6th grade.   I am loving the end result and the kids loved learning about Queen Nefertiti and her nephew Tut.  They brought in the brown paper bags that we used for the sarcophaguses, researched Egyptian art and even took a virtual tour of King Tut's tomb.  We talked about the flail and crook that he holds in his hands and what they symbolize.  And they looked at hieroglyphics and wrote their names in pictures on their mummy.
