Hieroglyphs
http://www.mos.org/quest/teaching.php
Hieroglyphs represent both phonetically spelled words and pictographs. This means that symbols can stand for a concept, but to a large extent, they are phonetic sounds. So it is possible to refer to a hieroglyphic alphabet, and write your own name in hieroglyphic. Try it!
Write your own name in a cartouche
Note: You didn't have to be a man to be a Pharaoh. After her husband Thutmose II died, Queen Hatshepsut declared herself Pharaoh.

Scale Model of the Great Pyramid
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/pyramid/geometry/model.html
You can build a model of the Great Pyramid, but first you need to scale it down. To do this, you will need to make the pyramid 3,000 times smaller than it really is! To achieve that, every 30 meters of the pyramid is represented as 1 centimeter on the outline provided.
Once you have printed and assembled your scaled-down model of the Great Pyramid, you can compare it to scaled-down versions of other buildings and objects, including people.

The Mummy Quiz
http://on.natgeo.com/VdDNKa
There’s more to mummies than meets the eye. Thousands of mummies, both man-made and naturally preserved, have been uncovered over the years. But these represent only a fraction of the untold millions of mummies that have been created. Though many mummies have disentegrated or been destroyed, more than 500 million may still be preserved in undiscovered tombs and burial places in Egypt alone. Try these ten tough trivia questions to see if you have the mummy mindset.
