This innovative series is designed to help teachers bring history topics to life through imaginative creative arts activities. Each pack includes 10 laminated, double-sided cards, printed in full color. Every card describes in detail activities that recreate aspects of life in a particular historical period, using art, drama and dance. All activities are based on historically researched authentic practices of the time. Ideal for whole class or small group sessions, the packs are an inspiration for busy teachers looking for new ways to approach project work at Key Stage 2 - and can also easily be used with Key Stage 1 classes.

Ancient Egyptian activities in this pack include using clay to create artifacts: the Game of Snake, soul houses and canopic jars; recreating rituals through drama: the Apprentice Embalmer and Weighing the Heart; making tomb paintings and bas relief; making shell jewelry, scarab rings and amulets; and creating a dance for the Festival of the Nile.
