King Tut steps

Egyptian HeiroglyphicsImage by riacale via Flickr

These King Tuts took 2 class periods to complete. Students were given 10"x10" white cardstock divided into 25 squares, 5 across and 5 down. (Each square 2"x2".)
Step 1 - Students cut the perimeter squares off in order to leave a section with 9 squares, 3 across and 3 down.
Step 2 - Students followed drawing directions for King Tut using the 9 squares.
Step 3- Students were given examples of Egyptian hieroglyphs, then drew symbols on each of the 16 perimeter squares.
Step 4 - Students colored Tut with markers.
Step 5 - Students colored 8 perimeter squares with one color, and the other 8 perimeter squares with a different color.
Step 6 - Students cut squares apart and arranged them on 12" x 12" background paper.
Step 7 - Students glued down the squares.

Thanks again Miss Julie for this lesson idea & Mrs. Venn's 6th grade Flamson Middle School students for their awesome effort:)
