SKU: H34IL401604

Download this fun Hieroglyphics KS2 lesson for Year 3 or Year 4 to teach your class all about ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics!

The lesson starts by looking at some images of ancient Egyptian artefacts and asking children to explain what we can learn about ancient Egypt from studying each object. The lesson then goes on to look at the Rosetta Stone, explaining the crucial importance of this discovery for the translation of hieroglyphics. Your class can then translate and write some hieroglyphics for themselves! As an alternative activity, children can consider what they would leave behind for future historians study.
