Third grade just embarked on a unit of studying ancient art history. We talked about the history and culture of Ancient Egypt, and looked at many artifacts to get ideas for a picture. Students were asked to imagine themselves as Ancient Egyptians and depict at least 5 details that they learned about. They started with pencil, then colored in with waterproof materials such as crayon. In the end, they made them look ancient by crinkling the paper and dipping it into an aging solution made from ink. They loved how the look made their work resemble papyrus.
