The Hands on History: The Ancient Egyptians Dress, Eat, Write and Play Just Like the Egyptians by Fiona MacDonald

Step into the world of the Ancient Egyptians! Wear your own beaded collar, challenge a friend to the ancient game of senet, make papyrus paper, learn to write in hieroglyphs, measure time with a water clock and paint a life-size pharaoh. Each book in QED's Hands-on History series combines informative text with brilliant hands-on projects that bring history to life. Step into the shoes of people from the past with this crafty little history series. Each book includes 13 fantastic activities so you can dress, eat, write and play just like the Ancient Egyptians, Romans, Aztecs and Vikings did. From making an Egyptian water clock to sipping Aztec hot chocolate, playing the Viking game of Hnef-tafl and dressing as a Roman gladiator, brilliant hands-on projects bring history to life. All activities have clear step-by-step instructions and use easily obtainable materials. Written by an acclaimed non-fiction children's author and illustrated with lavish photography, artwork and maps, each book is a comprehensive guide to the period. Perfect for homework projects! Meets both the UK and US curriculum requirements for history at this level.
