Ancient Egyptian Statues

The 3rd Grade students learned about the art and culture of Ancient Egyptians. They learned about different gods and goddesses from Egyptian culture and how they were often represented by animals like dogs (jackals)--Anubis, and cats--Bastet. Students created their Egyptian animal statues and enjoyed writing their names in (a loose) hieroglyphic translation as well as adding details that are characteristic of Egyptian artwork.
