Egyptian Engineering!

We are wrapping up the  end the year and celebrate the Winds of Time.  We have learned lots about the Ancient Civilization of Ancient Egypt.  Today we made all the knowledge connect by building a model of ancient Egypt.   Students were put on teams and given a pile of supplies (paper, straws, clothes pins, pipe cleaners and tape) to build something for the town.  We put the final products together and Egypt came to life!

Students had to apply what they know about shapes to make things 3 dimensional.  They had to apply what they know about Egypt to lay out the town.  For example, crops are near the Nile and the house to make growing and getting food easy.  This was a great culmination to our unit!
