Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.
Create a fact file about the River Nile and compare it to other famous world rivers. Include photographs and wow your classmates by showing them the range of amazing animals that live in and by the river.
Find out who or what ‘Ka’ was. Design a colourful symbol that might represent ‘Ka’ in Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Make flatbread and serve it to your family with authentic Egyptian dips or salads. Find out more about the food of ancient Egypt.
Visit a museum exhibition on ancient Egypt and write a recount of your trip. Bring back souvenirs to show your class.
