They made sarcophagi to hold the Fruity Pharaohs, which are still in the works, or natron to be more specifically.
I spray painted boxes we got at Michael's and they were left to decorate them as they wished. They used Sculpy, plastic jewels and paint, as well as other things they found around the house.
They also made cartouches from Sculpy.
They used a skewer to sketch in their hieroglyphs...
and then after they were baked, they inked in the grooves.
They made them into necklaces when they were finished.
Quentin made his headpiece.
Code of Hammurabi
Sam has been researching and writing about the Code of Hammurabi. The Code was based on the principle of equivalent retaliation (lex talionis). Sam chose a few laws in effect currently
in the US and looked up the prescribed penalties for breaking these laws. He then compared and contrasted these laws with corresponding decrees of Hammurabi's Code.
Math and English
It was review week in math and English.
What else did we do this week?
We had lots of snow, so we didn't go to co-op this week.
James made many things with Legos.
Quentin did a lot of play-acting.
Katie made lots of delicious meals. This is the Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken before it went into the oven.
She made Pineapple-Shrimp Fried Rice and served it in pineapple halves...
and Dragon Noodles.
