Hi all, I have posted a lot on here recently, I am an NQT and seeking some advice about a lesson I would like to do after half term. We're doing Ancient Egypt, but so far the children aren't really that inspired, they have been overloaded on timelines and farming calendars and nothing that has really grabbed them. I want to get some clay and build pyramids. I think this could work well as a DT lesson as children could create the blocks necessary and then build up their pyramids from the base (rather than just making a whole block), and to differentiate I could get them to make different types of pyramid (step, smooth etc.) that will have different levels of difficulty to set up. I think this could go really far and have visions of setting up all the children's pyramids on long tables and putting down sand etc. to represent a landscape of Egypt, with the Nile down the centre. I've never done this before so am just looking for advice. What will I need? How much clay would I need for 30 children to make one each (or is that going to be too much??), can you get clay that will just dry overnight? Any thoughts/ideas/advice is most welcome, thank you. Sfm.
