I had to share some pictures that my dear friend Rebecca sent me. She teaches in the gifted program at her middle school. Whether you're public, private, or home-schooled, I think this is a great idea for some hands-on fun that cements the study of the ancients right into their little brains.
They made pyramid models---with candy! There was a little sugar high going on, but they also learned without realizing it. Checking angles; putting into play the information they learned about the pyramids; putting in geographical details. What an awesome project! One child even commented that this was the best school day ever---they got to play around and not learn anything! HA! I love it when we can sneak learning in super fun activities. We all have more fun that way!
I love the entrance way of this one.
This one made me giggle, just a little. Very inventive, but my sarcastic inner self kept imagining smores in the desert.
I think this one is my favorite. And not just because I really like Twizzlers.
These kids ALL did a fantastic job and were able to show what they had learned in a unique and fun way. I love it. Go Rebecca!!
And just so you don't feel recipe deprived, here's a link to my current favorite Pioneer Woman recipe, Pasta alla Betsy. You really, really need to try this soon. The woman's my hero!
