Mummy Cat

Posted in third grade, and TTESS 1819

Third graders enjoyed learning about Egyptian beliefs and customs during the historical fiction story, Mummy Cat.  As we read the book, I introduced terms like pharaoh, serene, and hieroglyphics. We analyzed the artwork in the story and how it contributed to the narrative, to the point that there was a second story within the first! After the story and questions, we walked “Like an Egyptian” and wrote our name in hieroglyphics. The story even prompted kids to look for more books about Egypt!
