Cleopatra and Ancient Egypt for Kids : Her Life and World, with 21 Activities Paperback / softback
She has been called intelligent and scheming, ambitious and ruthless, sensual and indulgent.
Cleopatra and Ancient Egypt for Kids captures the excitement of Cleopatra's story, including portions of her life that have been largely neglected, such as her interest in literature and science and her role as a mother, and leads readers to draw their own conclusions.
Included throughout are many aspects of history and daily life in Ancient Egypt, helping readers to explore that fascinating and powerful civilization through Cleopatra's eyes.
Photos, maps, charts, sidebars, and a time line enrich the book, while 21 hands-on, interdisciplinary activities allow kids to step back in time and try their hand at Egyptian art and poetry and to experience how Egyptians freshened their breath, transported heavy obelisks, and irrigated fields, how Cleopatra might have made a pearl disappear, and much more.
