Pyramid Project

As we started back into our school routine yesterday, J8 and T6 build pyramids and a sphinx. We discussed how difficult these were to make with play dough and how the ancient Egyptians actually built them.

Later, they built pyramids with cuisenaire rods, and compared the structure of a step pyramid with an actual triangular pyramid.

We are back in year one for history and are studying Egypt right now also! So I showed this pic to my children and they were like, "Oh wow mom, let's try that!" Fun idea!
