Ancient Egypt
Explore the myths and legends surrounding the River Nile.


  The action takes place in an ancient Egyptian village on the banks of the River Nile.

  The children are in role as young villagers learning an important trade or skill. They learn that a new Queen is on her way to visit them to discover why the Nile has not flooded this year. Their challenge is to appease the Queen and help her solve her problem.

  The children will have fun creating their Ancient Egyptian roles and solving the mystery, while learning important facts about the Egyptian gods, as well as the myths & legends surrounding the River Nile.

"“There was a good variety of activities on different aspects of Ancient Egypt and it was excellent that you focused on ordinary people, as the children often focus on the Pharaohs and the rich. The fact that you created a story, that we were all part of, made it exciting, real and more understandable for the children, as did the in-role problem that we all had to solve. The children really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it.”
