Choose ONE of the projects below and complete by Friday, October 7


1. ~ Canopic Jars

Make all four (4) jars representing each son of Horus: Falcon (Intestines), Baboon (Lungs), Human (Liver) and Jackal (Stomach). You can make these out of clay that either hardens or that you have to bake.

Design each god to make it look as real as possible (maybe using some paint to emphasize the characteristics).

Make something for each jar that represents the internal organs (Example: Intestines might look like spaghetti). You can make the organs out of clay also.

Write a ½ page reflection describing how you completed your project and describing what canopic jars are used for.

Rubric Questions for Canopic Jars

Did you make 4 jars representing each god?

Did you make all 4 organs?

How well were they designed and painted?

How much effort did you put into this project?

2. ~ Hieroglyphic Alphabet Book

Design an entire book (one page per letter A = one page in this book) on the hieroglyphic alphabet for an elementary child to read.

You must have a cover page with your Name and Title.

You must draw these hieroglyphics yourself. Don't try to copy them (it must represent your own artwork).

Color each page and make them interesting. Pretend this is for a small child to read.

The book must be hole punched and tied together (maybe in a folder or with ribbon).

Write a ½ page reflection describing how you completed your project and when hieroglyphics were invented.


Rubric Questions for the Alphabet Book

Did you include a cover page with a title and your name?

Do you have one page per letter?

Did you color each page with colored pencils or crayons?

Are the words you used easy enough for a young child to read and understand? (Example: Use the word ball and draw a picture of a ball for the letter b, but all in hieroglyphics).

Is the book hole punched and tied together in alphabetical order?

How much effort did you put into this project?


3. ~ Giza Pyramids

This project must be made inside some box to contain the sand (we don't want to get it all over the place). You could use a small box, such as a shoe box.

Create the Pyramids of Giza (all of them including Khafre, Khufu, Menakure and the Sphinx). These should not just be plain paper (Example: Maybe make them with clay and cover them with sand paper).

You must have sand surrounding the pyramids to make it look more realistic (Example: Use real sand or sand paper).

The Nile River was off to the east of the pyramids, make something to represent the river (Example: a blue clay river could be made).

Write a ½ page reflection describing how you completed your project and describing how the pyramids were constructed.


Rubric Questions for Giza Pyramids

Did you make the pyramids in a box?

Were all of the pyramids created and labeled?

Was the Sphinx created and labeled?

Was sand added to make it look more realistic?

Was the Nile River added to make it look more realistic?

4. ~ Pharaoh's Tomb Mummy Project

This project must be made inside a box (maybe a shoe box or something a bit bigger).

Make a mummy and place it inside a coffin and sarcophagus (maybe you could use ripped up white cloth to make a mummy, you could use an old doll to put inside the mummy cloth, you could also use a small wooden sarcophagus).

Draw hieroglyphics and pictures on the walls of your tomb to represent the mummy's life).

Make items to represent the treasures that your mummy will need in the afterlife (Example: food, furniture, etc.).

Write a ½ page reflection describing how you made your project and what the process of mummification was.


Tip: You might use some sort of spray paint (marble or gold) to make the items look fitting for a Pharaoh).
