I was approached by the Biblical History Museum in March of 2010 to develop educational programming for the museum. I developed a four-week series of programs about Ancient Egyptian culture for elementary age students. The topics of the programs included Geography, Mummies and Medicine, Temples and Tombs, and Art and Writing. Each program consisted of a short powerpoint presentation and question and answer session regarding the specific topic, followed by activities and crafts related to the subject covered. Activities and crafts included map activities, paper mache mummies, seed planting, sugar cube pyramid construction, and practice writing with hieroglyphs.
After successful completion of these programs, I was asked to develop an archaeology camp, in conjunction with the C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa. The archaeology day camp took place in July 2010 and was open to teenagers. The response was overwhelming, with 20 students registered for the camp. We opened with an introduction to archaeology lesson with powerpoint. At the end of camp, I wrote a blog detailing the week.
