In this lesson, students will learn about hieroglyphs, cartouches and Egyptian art. Rather than simply transliterating their name into hieroglyphs, the students will develop a cartouche based on their own interests and traits. In this way, the assignment relies on complex thinking rather than simply copying. After designing their own cartouche, including new symbols and reinterpreted hieroglyphs, the students will apply the knowledge to create a poster that can be hung in the classroom.
The assignment is interdisciplinary, and the materials are thorough.
