Ancient Egypt in Volta Class

#beingHowardCarter - investigating an Ancient Egyptian tomb

This week, Mr Bird, an Egyptologist and Coordinator for a search on a newly discovered tomb of a Pharaoh, set Volta class the task of investigating an Ancient Egyptian tomb. 

The children had to think about what clues would help them to identify which Pharaoh the tomb belonged to. However, their task was made more difficult by the high levels of methane gas inside the tomb - restricting their search time to just 20 seconds per pair.

Volta class made some amazing discoveries; here are some photos of their investigation session.
