I love the way hands on experiences bring learning to life! We’ve been studying ancient history - nomads becoming farmers, Egypt and pyramids. Today we got to feel how heavy a shaduf is, experience how nearly impossible it is to pull a limestone block to build a pyramid, walk through a mastaba, run our hands over hieroglyphs, among so many other things. I hope that these experiences keep their love of learning alive. That they connect with the things they learn, not as distant facts, but as real people with real stories.
