12. Egypt (cc)

12. Egypt (cc)

Egypt is located in North Africa. Most of the population is near the Nile River since the desert covers much of the rest of the country. Our crafts are inspired by ancient Egypt and common symbols of this country. Our first craft is appropriately a pyramid - a well known symbol of Egypt. A pyramid is a building where the outer surfaces are triangular and converge at a point. The Egyptian pyramids are huge structures built of brick or stone, some of which are among the world's largest constructions. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the largest in Egypt. It was one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the only one of the seven to survive into modern times. Next, we create the Pharaohs cobra headdress in paper. The figure of the serpent is an emblem of royalty and is shown on many Egyptian rulers. Children wore a special hairstyle in ancient Egypt. The hair was shaved except for a side lock on the left side. They often decorated their hair with amulets of small fish to protect them from the dangers of the Nile. Then we create a 3D asp or snake made from an old tie. The asp was a symbol of royalty but is also a poisonous snake used in ancient Egypt as way to execute criminals. The symbols of hieroglyphics are used to create a message for the last project. Hieroglyphs refer to the characters made by drawing figures. The word means sacred carving and was a formal writing system used by the ancient Egyptians. 2011/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
