Egyptian Tomb Art: Expressions of Religious Beliefs
Ninth graders are introduced to the Prown's technique of describing various objects. As a class, they view pictures of the pyramids in Egypt and discuss how the size and shape of them show their belief in eternal life and religion. They describe them based on the Prown technique and create their own pyramids to end the lesson. They also complete the same steps with a Shawabti figure and another object of their choosing.
