Category: 12 – Middle Kingdom of Egypt

I’ve been letting our history lessons slide if I’m not prepared to do the activities, so I’ve decided to just keep going with the readings and do a bunch of the activities in one day when we’re more prepared. For SOTW’s Middle Kingdom of Egypt we already made our Hyksos chariot, but this week we re-read it as a review and did a few more activities. Satori got a kick out of mom continually having to refer to the pronunciation chart in the back of the book to pronounce Amenemhet, Ahmose, Tutunkhamen, Thutmose, Hatshepsut. Satori of course had it all memorized the first time, she’s got such a good memory. A day later, I heard her murmuring some of these hard Egyptian names when playing with her Barbies.

For this lesson, I thought I’d use the whiteboard to “act-draw” the lesson out, mostly to help me retain it all. It actually turned out fun and Satori loved it! This board illustrated the Middle Kingdom of Egypt, how Amenemhet looked to Nubia to expand, bringing gold and other items like monkeys into Egypt. The Egyptians renamed Nubia Kush. Later, Nubians became an important part of Egypt, such as Queen Tiye (Tie-ee). Then the Hyksos came down with their new weapons and chariots, ruled for Egypt 100 years, until Ahmose drove them out.

Some of the activities we did included making  golden bracelets.

For this craft, I used a Scott toilet paper roll (they don’t leave toilet paper residue), cut it in half, and then cut lengthwise. Painted it in gold and let dry.

Then Satori put them on her little arms.

Also a suggested activity was burning incense. Might as well make a lesson multi-sensory!

Anyway, from now on, we will be on schedule for our SOTW history lessons, even if we go for several weeks simply reading the book and doing the Activity Guide coloring pages/maps. We can easily review with audio. The fun crafts and activities won’t hold us up any longer!

This afternoon while David was preparing his hot chocolate, he started joking around and proclaimed he wanted to go to Jo-Anns and get some materials to do some crafts. In the blink of an eye, I set out craft materials for a SOTW project Satori and I were going to do this week. He eased into the craft and we turned it into a family craft night!

Satori is now studying the Middle Kingdom of Egypt and after reading “The Hyksos Invade Egypt”, we learned that the Egyptians grew weak and were invaded by the Hyksos. The Hyksos were warrior nomads who easily conquered Egypt with their superior weapons and a light-weight horse-drawn chariot. Eventually the Egyptians copied these tools of warfare and drove the Hyksos out using their own technology!

Here’s a few drawings of Egyptian chariots and weapons. For the parents wanting to learn more about this time, here’s =a 7.5 page PDF document about these chariots and the Hyksos.

This craft was much easier to do than I anticipated. It was one of our first experiences using a hot glue gun, sorry David for not warning you how hot that glue was going to be! Our chariot is a bit bigger than the ones pictured above, but it served its purpose. Our Egyptian warrior was proudly carried around in it.

Just for giggles, Satori also wanted me to shoot a picture of our Egyptian fighting off a Dimetrodon. She knew the Dimetrodon was from prehistoric Permian period and this scene could never have taken place!
