We have also made cave paintings, drawn hieroglyphics and written cuneiform in play dough:
Today the highlight was making mini pyramids out of sugar cubes and PVA glue:
All these ideas are from The Story of the World Activity Book - essential for someone like me who isn't particularly creative! Of course, there are written narrations and maps to colour as well, but the activities have made it even more fun, and will hopefully help the children to remember what we have learned.
