Well today we found out that we have an upcoming test on Tuesday. It’s on the early Egyptians and I should probably start studying now so I can get a good grade on it. Well otherwise today all we did was take notes. The notes were on hieroglyphs and hieratic writing. We also learned about the calendars and sailboats and how they used sailboats to get across the Nile. The Egyptians had created the calendars to keep track of the seasonal cycles. That is what our calendars are like now. Then we also learned about papyrus. Papyrus is a type of ink that they used back then to write scripts. Papyrus was made from mashed Nile reeds. Papyrus was also stores in scrolls and these scrolls were the books of ancient Egypt. Well that’s all we did today was write notes. So I hope you have a great weekend and I hope you enjoyed this blog.
