Ancient Egypt: Art of the Old Kingdom

More from our field trips to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. They have some terrific activity booklets for exploring the collections, available for download here and downloabable materials for educators and web resources here. Mikro had fun doing the Think Sphinx and Mysterious Mummies guides.

This bunch of photos are from the Old Kingdom:

Just around the corner, you can explore the tomb of Raemki:

Mikro enjoyed this model of a tomb, showing the various chambers:

Lots more to see!
