Egyptian Mummies

Ancient Egyptian mummies were the focus of our third grade art history unit.  Students watched a Reading Rainbow, Mummies Made in Egypt, to learn about mummification.  They used a template for the main shape of a Pharoah or Queen, then drew their own face, head piece, collar and bands.    Bold Crayola markers were used to color bands across the mummies.  Egyptian motifs were added with gold paint pens.  Students were instructed to vary their patterns in terms of size, shape and amount of gold.
