As the Yavneh students learned about Pesach, they took a journey to Ancient Egypt and explored what life was like for a child living there. They learned about what they wore, what they ate and how they learned to write. The gan students had a great time learning about hieroglyphics, their writing system which used pictures instead of the alphabet letters we use today. Everyone practiced writing his or her own name in this ancient language. They also enjoyed creating and wearing ancient Egyptian headdresses like the pharaohs wore. It was fascinating to explore this culture from so long ago. The Yavneh early childhood students also had a special visit from the Matzah Factory this week and the children baked their own matzot!
