Ancient scrolls - grade 5/6
Did this project with my grade 5/6 class, as we are currently studying ancient Egypt (grade 5) and Canada's explorers (grade 6.) We did the research and writing yesterday, then spent today making our beautiful scrolls!
First, I'll start with the basics - how we drew the scrolls. I got my wonderful drawing directions here. We used a heavyweight drawing paper so that it wouldn't tear in the water. I demonstrated the following steps on the board:
Next, this is the technique I used to dye 34 scrolls at the same time.
Then, just add your ancient text and you're finished!
