Ancient Egyptian Canopic jars

Lesson: Art and design

Class: Y3 - Mrs O'Connor & Mrs Shimmin Year: 2017 - 2018

This afternoon, we studied Ancient Egyptian canopic jars and learned about how they were used. We then used our artistic skills to create mini replica jars of our own. We created coils of clay which we then scratched and moulded to create the base of our jar and then used additional coils to build the sides of our jars. 

After our jars have dried, we shall paint them in the style of the Ancient Egyptians.
