About:

Your students will meet Amohep, a Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, and assist him in planning the construction of his Pyramid.

The children will find out how a pyramid was constructed through a series of interactive games. They will discover just how unimaginably heavy the limestone blocks were that the Ancient Egyptians used in the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza, they will uncover precisely what the angle of a Pyramid should be (after all no one wants a wonky Pyramid) and learn how the Ancient Egyptians ensured that the tip of the Pyramid pointed due north.

The Students will be commanded by their Pharaoh to design the traps that will stop thieves from entering his Pyramid (after all, he doesn't want his fabulous trasure being stone). They will need to ensure that the traps work by demonstrating them to Amohep. They will also have to prove that their ideas are effective by justifying their trap designs. This segment combines both historical information and drama and performance, allowing the students imagination to run wild in the construction of devious traps using nothing but their own bodies.

Your students will then have the opportunity to discover how a Mummy was made so that they can become Royal Embalmers. The details of the process are quite gruesome, and they will need a strong stomach to discover all of the information. The Practitioner will take them step by step through the mummification process and ask for volunteers to aid in the demonstration, if anyone is brave enough!

The great Pharaoh Amhohep is also looking for his subjects to prove that they are ready to build his Pyramid and they can demonstrate just that in our ‘What would a Pharaoh do?’ quiz round. Will the students prove wise enough to pass this challenge? This segment combines a game show structure with fascinating Egyptian stories and facts.

Finally your students can question Amohep to discover what life was like as a Pharaoh in Ancient Egypt. This encourages the development of their soft skills as they gather information from direct interaction with a Pharaoh.
