weaving was one of the earliest Egyptian crafts (scraps of woven linen
have been discovered dating back 6,000 years!).......

I had my sixth graders this year recreate an Egyptian tomb at school.
They did tempera batik tomb paintings(these were great), they translated
their own names into hieroglyphics at an online website and then made
cartouches on paper. They did clay canopic jars as well as two life size
sarcophagus. The sarcophagus's (sarcophagi)?, were made out of cardboard
but were 3D and stood up by themselves, the faces were plaster castings
of two student volunteers and all the kids helped to paint them.
