What Do You Sphinx?

Libby has enjoyed learning about Egypt this year, but after awhile our curriculum got a bit dull. So, I decided to branch out on my own and do some of the things that I thought a six-year old should know about. One of those things was the sphinx, so we looked it up online and read about it and then put a 3-D puzzle together.

I was honestly quite happy with the way things worked out. We just finished reading a book called "Boy of the Pyramids" and in the book he meets Khufu, the Pharaoh. Come to find out, the sphinx guards the entrance to the pyramid of Khufu's son, Khafre. Libby was so excited to hear a name she recognized and can give you both names, although she has to think a bit about Khafre's name. :)

I LOVE homeschooling (most days).
