Students love writing with hieroglyphics! This lesson is a great sub lesson or mini lesson applicable to an art class or a social studies/history extension.
Included in the zip file:
-PowerPoint about hieroglyphics and cartouches (8 slides)
-PDF File of PowerPoint
-PDF handout of hieroglyphic alphabet
-PDF handout of directions for cartouche
An extension I do in my classroom with this lesson is to have students create the cartouche from a clay slab, using the technique of relief sculpture. They can then paint or glaze the bisque fired piece.
