With trembling hands I made a tiny hole in the corner of the door-widening the hole a little I inserted a candle and peered in. At first I could see nothing, as my eyes grew used to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist; strange animals, statues and gold, everywhere. The glint of gold"¦.The tomb was packed with treasure that had been buried with the dead Pharaoh Tutankhamun - the most important was an incredibly beautiful mask made of pure gold and a blue stone called lapis lazuli.

Ancient EgyptThe history topic packs are very good. The children could feel the pictures and talk about themJanine
Links well with class topicStudent enjoyed the pack especially the maps as he made his own tactile map for a class wall display. Also enjoyed the Homes section and used it in role play and to make a house with moveable parts from a shoe box. The pack linked well with the class topic and a trip to a museum.Rose
Very informativeEspecially enjoyed the section on the pyramids and the personal narrative approach of Nathanial. Information set out in a clear and simple way supported the student in enabling him to complete his own Egyptian project at home. Amazing all the facts he remembered.Library Member
