Language Arts 4/28-29

Today we started our study of Egyptian myths.  The word study words were amulet, Book of the Dead, Nun, Ra, and cartouche.  Make sure you get those in your notes if you missed class.

Then, I read aloud one version of the creation story… since mythology is all public domain, feel free to google it and read up on your own.

Next, we took a look at hieroglyphics.  I used this site:  http://www.pbs.org/empires/egypt/special/hieroglyphs/introduction.html  Students practiced writing their names, and we even tried the quiz at the end.

Finally, we started our next mini-project that will last through the week.  Check out the assignment sheet, attached:  egyptian book

Homework:  Picture book project due Friday
