Week 1: March 17th-March 20th Lesson
Welcome to Mr. Herzog's Fifth Grade Online Lessons:
My Egyptian Sarcophagus:
In this lesson Fifth Grade will be creating their own Egyptian Sarcophagus.
Here is a video on "Tutankhamun: The Golden King & The Great Pharaohs"
"How to Draw Tutankhamun Real Easy"
Please read all instructions before beginning:
- Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do).
- Hold the paper vertically.
- Draw King Tutankhamun's Sarcophagus.
- The Sarcophagus is the coffin that held the mummified body of King Tutankhamun.
- The shape of the Sarcophagus is a 4x9 rectangle that is rounded at the top. (see photos)
- Follow the YouTube video on "How to draw Tutankhamun Real Easy".
- Draw your face where King Tutankhamun's face is.
- Pay close attention to drawing your face and King Tut's head piece (do your best!).
- Once you are done drawing the Your Face and the Head Piece.
- Below the head piece draw two arms that are folded across the body.
- Divide the Egyptian Sarcophagus into eight parts by drawing lines across the body of the Sarcophagus.
- Each part is an area where designs can be drawn on the Sarcophagus.
- Draw both Egyptian designs and designs that tell about you, including logos, cartoon characters, shapes of things you enjoy (sports, hobbies, etc) alternating each part.
- After you are done with your drawing, you may color the Egyptian Sarcophagus in crayon, magic markers, or color pencils, whatever supplies you have at home will be fine.
- Use only five or six different colors on your Egyptian Sarcophagus.
Here is an Example:
- Have fun creating your Egyptian Sarcophagus, I can't wait to see them!
Here is a slide show of various artifacts found in King Tutankhamon's tomb; look at this to get ideas about Egyptian designs. Enjoy!
