2018 San Diego Book Awards Finalist Cleopatra has been called intelligent and scheming, ambitious and ruthless, sensual and indulgent. This unique biography captures the excitement of her life story, including portions that have been largely neglected, such as her interest in literature and science and her role as a mother, and allows readers to draw their own conclusions. Cleopatra and Ancient Egypt for Kids also includes maps, time lines, online resources, a glossary, and 21 engaging hands-on activities to help readers better appreciate the ancient culture and era in which Cleopatra lived. Kids will: - Create a beaded Egyptian-style necklace
- Build a simple Nile River boat
- Prepare homemade yogurt
- Construct a model shadoof, a tool used to raise water to higher ground for irrigation
- Translate their names into hieroglyphs for a cartouche bookmark
- "Mummify" a hot dog
- Write an Egyptian love poem
- And more!
