Discover Pyramid Power! Get to know the wonders of the pyramids by exploring King Tut's tomb, making a pyramid-building sledge, creating pyramids of cardboard, clay, blocks, cans and discovering the mysteries of the mummies, the Sphinx, and a Soul House. How old is ancient? Learn about linear timing by developing meaningful comparisons, using visualisations and creating timelines.
