Moses In Egypt

This week we learned about Moses being raised as an Egyptian.

(Exodus 1:15 - 2:23) The students and I then studied the Egyptian culture and discovered what the people of Egypt believed. Among other things, they worshiped over 160 gods and goddesses. We also learned that the black eyeliner Egyptians are so famous for was originally used to reflect the sun off their faces; just like foot ball players do with the black lines under their eyes.  Over time, this practical use of eyeliner turned more to that of a beauty and religious focus.

The 2nd and 3rd grade class did an amazing job on their King Tut projects! Check them out:
