The first couple of weeks of history cover ancient Egypt so you know we had to make mummies. I was hoping Bill would give the green light to really mummify a chicken or something, but he preferred we didn't (no sense of adventure sometimes!).
We also made throwing sticks which young boys would play with to practice killing birds to eat- sort of like toy guns for kids today.
They put amulets between layers of linen so we did too
Hands on crafts are our favorite part of school!
