I think Egypt has the most interesting history of any country we've studied so far. We keep jumping back there and learning interesting things about what the ancient people of that country did. We found out that they really liked gold and jewels (who doesn't, right?), so much so that they took over the African country of Nubia so they could take their valuables. The people of Nubia also introduced incense to the Egyptians.
The craft for this lesson is pretty obvious. We made Nubian jewelry out of toilet paper rolls, paint, glitter, and rhinestones.
Apparently, Naomi thought she was an Egyptian and I was a Nubian because she took my bracelets from me!
Eli didn't feel like participating in this activity, so he hung out by the incense. I think he was still able to have a very deep, profound experience.
