Any language is made of symbols. Using a pictorial Egyptian alphabet reinforces that each English alphabet letter means something. This Preschool STEM lesson plan provides background knowledge and context to promote reading skills.
Kids love mummies! THAT was the interest “hook”! Promote academic concepts through hands on activities.
We did these over the course of a month, one or two activities a week.
The Hieroglyphic necklace craft is included in the Free Download at the end of the post. There is a link to an easy pharaoh headdress to print and color which the boys enjoyed making. Students can spell their name with my alphabet pack of hieroglyphic cards. The Download also includes a book list.
We also built pyramids with Jenga blocks, egg carton cups,sugar cubes (i don't recommend because they kept eating haha) and a 3d paper pyramid from a template.
Pyramid building and later days these cups became a favorite as they expanded into castle building.
