Here are some pictures that might give you some inspiration for your questions.

Try to think of at least 6 questions and answers, but you are welcome to complete more!

Remember these words to start your questions. Can you use each one?

Geography:
3D map of Ancient Egypt

In school, the children will be planning and making 3D maps of Ancient Egypt. We will continue to talk about the importance of the River Nile and find out more about how the Nile was so significant to the people of Egypt.

Your task at home is to plan and then make your own 3D map of Ancient Egypt, including as many key geographical features you can think of.  Some of these are given below, but you might want to do some extra research to consider what else you could include.

Here is a video showing some images of what Egypt may have looked like thousands of years ago:

You can make your 3D map out of any resources that you have at home, paper, card, boxes... It could be made as a diorama in a shoebox.  You might prefer to use construction toys (Lego) or other materials you can find at home. You could even make it out of salt dough or cake!  Be as creative as you like!

Here are a few pictures for inspiration.

This is a sheet to design your 3D map- or simply draw and list the resources you intend to use.
We look forward to seeing your creation!
Later in the week, we will be writing about our maps, so you might want to hold on to it to bring into school or take a photo of it.

Thank you for working so hard on your tasks today. We hope you enjoyed them.
