After Friday's At Class, the children and I had to go out of town. I still wanted to post some pictures even though it is a little late.
We finished up Egypt this week. Next week with will be moving on to Rome. This week the children did some more drawing exercises with things related to Egypt. They were given a series of directions they had to follow (ex. draw a pyramid above the Nile River.) Then they were shown some Egyptian illustrations and got to choose one to duplicate. They also drew mummies in pencil, then outlined them in marker, colored, cut ,and glued them to another paper. Their favorite project was to make a sundial. They painted a circular piece of paper yellow and put a stamp at 12,3,6. and 9 o clock and put a string on it. They thought that was so cool! Anthony went running outside to try to tell the time, but it was raining and the sun was not out.
The little girls drew with pencils and crayons. Lily did decide she wanted to paint and joined the older children to make the sundial.
