The Egyptian Experience

We just completed our Egyptian Experience by making self portraits with Egyptian Headdresses, Cartouches and Egyptian Hieroglyphs!  Thanks to Georgetown Elementary blog, http://josettebrouwer.edublogs.org/2012/05/16/third-grade-egyptian-portraits/, Kindergarten - 2nd grade used their great ideas of using student photography to create our pieces.  We were also studying line so each class made borders around their pieces to incorporate line design around their art.
3rd-4th grade used water colors to create hieroglyphs and 5th-6th painted canvas Cartouches. 

One of my students was so inspired he went home and created these awesome pyramids using cardboard glued together and sand from his sandbox out back!  Super Cool!
