Hands on Education - Ancient Egyptians

As our family is studying Ancient Egypt, I was excited to try the Ramses II Canopic Jars. I love integrating hands on learning with our studies. My kids always remember our projects and the information that correlates to the history projects best.

As much as I like coming up with clever crafts and activities for every aspect of our homeschool, sometimes my time, energy, and quite honestly inspiration just isn’t there. Now after seeing these beautiful, authentic jars, a toilet paper Canopic Jar doesn’t even come close!! I love affordable, easy to complete learning activities!

We started by finding Egypt and the Nile River on our map and reading some background information from the FREE Teacher’s Guide included with each project. We learned that our Duamatef (Jackal Head) Jar was one of four jars discovered holding Ramses II mummified remains. The Duamatef Jar we made held his stomach. (My 2nd grader thought that was way cool!)

Next, we began creating our replica of the Ramses II Canopic Jars. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. It was so nice to have everything we needed to create our project . My Kindergartner really enjoyed doing the painting.

We learned a little about hieroglyphics and my 2nd grader practiced making the writing for the Canopic Jar before trying it on our dry jar.

  1. My kids would love theses art kits! I try to incorporate hands-on projects as much as possible. I would choose the Civil War face jug. We'll be studying the war soon and my son would love the uniqueness of it!

  2. I'm a homeschool co-op history and art teacher (http://schooledinlove.wordpress.com/) for Jr. High kids, and I'm pretty sure they would love to do any of items shown on the site, but I have particular interest in the Aztec Empire - Quetzalcoatl sculpture, as we'll be studying that era soon, and it'll give me enough time to order for a class of 17 kiddos. I've been homeschooling for 12 years, and I've never heard of Art in History, but it looks dang cool!
