We make a lot of time creating new things, because creation is important, but we also like to recreate things, or re-imagine existing and historical things. It is a lot of fun of course, but it also looks great in the home education reports I have to produce to be a registered homeschooler.
We have been working on a unit on Ancient Egypt. We’ve examined the geography, looking at the role of the Nile. WE made a list of questions we wanted to investigate and looked them up. We drew maps and examined posters.
We watched a documentary called “Planet Egypt“. The first episode is about the Narmer Palette and the unification of Egypt. The Narmer Palette is a pre-dynastic artifact, that means it was before the pharaohs.
Have you tried reecreations or historically inspired creations? What works for you?
