Ancient Egypt Art and Culture
Discover the history behind artifacts, funerary objects, sculptures, and two mummies found during late 19th century excavations in Egypt. Students will be challenged to examine objects on display to draw conclusions about daily life and religious beliefs in Ancient Egypt. Art-making activities can include making your own cat mummy (suggested grades 3 & 4) or creating funerary figurines called ushabtis (suggested grades 5 and up). Classrooms completing virtual field trips will be provided art activities in digital form/printables available to complete as asynchronous extension activities separate from the live programming.
