Egyptian Hieroglyphs

There is no Fine Arts homework for tonight.

Today's activities:

The class looked at examples of Egyptian hieroglyphs and talked about how they were read and written differently than other languages. Each student translated their name into hieroglyphic writing using a worksheet, then transferred their hieroglyphic name to a larger sheet of paper to create cartouches.

Tuesday: Complete cartouches. Discuss Egyptian art rules and look at more images of artwork. Find symbols and stories to tell from artwork.
