5th Grade 3D Sarcophagus'
1st- Students traced two sarcophagus' on two pieces of thin canvas. Adding a headdress, beaded collar, vertical middle line for hieroglyphic name design, and horizontal lines for symmetrical egyptian symbols. The back piece they drew the back of the headdress and only horizontal lines where they could write out a story or create a pattern using hieroglyphics or symbols. This was all done in pencil first.
2nd- Students traced all symbols and lines using the black fabric marker or a black sharpie marker.
3rd- I made it a requirement that they all use both fabric marker and fabric paints to fill in color.
4th- We will be cutting these out and sewing them together (next week we start sewing!) I am expecting this to be rather difficult! I will let you know how that goes! We will stuff them with pillow filling also!
