We travelled there by train, to New Street Station. When we arrived we took part in a history workshop.
We learnt about:
- Canopic jars
- How Egyptians get to the after life
- Gods and Goddess'
- The animals
- Which organs were important to the Egyptians
- How they weighed their hearts
After lunch we took part in an Art workshop.
We viewed the Egyptian art gallery and sketched different patterns and artefacts.
When we returned to the art classroom we used papaya paper and oil paints to create our own Egyptian painting.
We also learnt about how paints were made in Ancient Egypt, why their paintings were so important and the stories that the paintings told.
