KEVA® Pyramids

OBJECTIVE: Students will re-create Egyptian landmarks using KEVA planks.

MATERIALS:

  • 100-200 planks per child

PROCEDURE:

  1. Mark off the Nile River on the floor of your classroom using KEVA planks.

  2. Assign different groups of students to research different Egyptian structures: the Great Pyramid, lesser pyramids, the Great Sphinx, obelisks, temples and houses.

  3. Mark off actual building sites for the pyramids and the Great Sphinx. Allow students to choose spots to place the other structures.

  4. Have students build the structures they have researched.

LANGUAGE EXTENSION: After the Egyptian landscape is complete, have each group report to the class on what they built and why it was important to the Egyptians.
