What is that you ask? JUST A PYRAMID EXCAVATION KIT. GAH!
So. I put my excitement aside and we did the rest of the packet first.
This month was really great! Lots of involvement from the kiddos. I really like when the map is utilized.
We had to find Egypt.
Then they had a "unscramble the word" activity. All the words were cities/bodies of water in or around Egypt. So lots of map usage. With the invention of the internet, I really think that maps rarely get used. I love that with Little Passports they don't have a choice. They HAVE to study the map!
After the map work there was a "mystery word" challenge when you had to match the hieroglyph to a letter. There were two letters that had the same hieroglyph. Luckily I was there and figured it out. Mom to the RESCUE!
Nate did the "which camel is different" puzzle. It was very thought provoking as seen by the photo.
Worksheet done! Now it was PYRAMID TIME!!!!!
Inside the pyramid you get one of two statues. The pyramid is made of plaster. We took our little tools and started chiseling....
...and more chiseling... Then..we struck gold! Literally!!!
...and we chiseled more.
It was at this point I thought...huh....water washes away plaster...and I ran to the sink and started rinsing it off.
SNAP went the plaster and thankfully it did. My fingers were TIRED. I seriously worked for what had to be 30 minutes before remembering this. If you get this set remember WATER.
I managed to wiggle the head out and rinsed it off!!! EXCITEMENT!!! The boys were fighting over it, so into the suitcase it goes so they can BOTH enjoy it!
Little Passports did NOT disappoint this month. AH-MAZING.
It is not to late to head over to the website and get an order in for Christmas! There are many different packages to choose from! Being a mom of three I HIGHLY recommend this. A gift that teaches, inspires, lasts for months, and WON'T get lost under a tree.
