Fourth grade finished their Egyptian king and queen portraits and then we moved on to the pyramids. We used Google Trek to explore the pyramids before we settled into our groups to make a plan for our diorama. They’ve been working so hard on these! Check out our progress:
Fourth grade really enjoyed learning about the queens and pharoahs and all of the art of Ancient Egypt. We looked at tons of photos of monuments, hieroglyphics, sculptures, and sarcophagi. We took their photos using Photobooth on the Mac and then cut their heads and necks out and glued them to a black background. We drew the clothes and head-ware with pencil, first, then added color with oil pastels. They also wrote their names in hieroglyphics and added a frame of gold and silver. They all seemed pleased with their final products!
