218a Package of Papyrus Sheets (10 sheets, each 8"x11.5")
Nature-Watch Exclusive!

It took Jean-Francois Champollion 14 years to translate the Rosetta stone and break the hieroglyphic code. Kids can decipher Egyptian history in a few minutes by using the keys provided and our own Nature Watch Rosetta Stone. They also get to create bookmark out of real papyrus (imported from Egypt!) that carries their own secret message. This is one of the best projects we've ever developed as it emphasizes so many disciplines.

Ages 5 and up.

Unit Goals and Concepts:

  • Define and experience the science of anthropology.
  • Develop cooperative skills through group inquiry.
  • Decipher Egyptian symbols to uncover a secret message.
  • Use hieroglyphics in a papyrus project.

Materials Included: 

  • Real Egyptian papyrus for each child to make his or her own bookmark.
  • Our own Rosetta Stone (with a secret message that requires deciphering skills).
  • Mystery objects - participants can use their imaginations to see how items would be used in different civilizations.
  • Hieroglyphic stencils and Hieroglyphic symbol sheets for reference.
  • Our exclusive instructor's activity guide that makes planning the project easy and delivers loads of fun ideas for activities, games and relevant projects.
  • The only materials you supply are markers and yarn.

For groups larger than 25, simply add extra papyrus sheets on to your order (see below).
