While investigating pyramids and mummies, invite students to craft a replica of an amulet. This pendant gleams with symbols of Ancient Egypt!
During a study of Ancient Egypt, students will discover that symbols were very important to Ancient Egyptians. The scarab is a Kephri or dung beetle. While the scarab does not sound very powerful or even pretty, what the beetle did was significant to the Egyptians. What did this beetle represent to this ancient culture?
During an investigation into Ancient Egypt, invite student groups to find out what type of stones scarabs were carved in. Provide photographs for viewing and discussion.
Once the research component of this lesson is complete, provide students with materials to create their own scarabs. Begin by distributing White Crayola Model Magic that can be kneaded into an oval shape. The handle end of a Crayola Paint Brush can be used to score a scarab design into the Model Magic. Then ask students to press a hole in the top of their scarabs and air-dry the beetles overnight.
In preparation for painting scarabs, have students cover their work area with recycled newspaper. Paint the scarabs using gold Crayola Premier Tempera. Air-dry the paint overnight.
Students highlight the scarab design with a dark Crayola Fine Line Marker.
Provide students with a piece of yarn or string to thread through the hole in scarab. Secure the ends with adhesive tape. Students proudly wear their artwork around necks.
