Egyptian Amulets

We spent time today researching Egyptians and their amulets - it was a great way to introduce their 'gods' and their superstitions.
We looked at a sample of stones they considered precious - turquoise, amethyst and lapis lazuli.
and finished by using an activity from the Evan Moor history pocket  to make our own amulets.
 My favourite part of the day had to be when DD6 decided that the single hole punch wasn't gonna beat her - hard as it was she persisted and managed to win :)
