The Legacy of the Ancient Egyptians
Legacy: something which is handed down from one period of time to another period of time.
This lesson, we learnt about the legacy left by the Ancient Egyptians and how they have influenced and impacted our world today. We explored how their methods of living, from telling the time to writing, was not only remarkable for the time but is very much present in modern life. Additionally, we researched a series of questions about the legacy of Ancient Egypt and presented our findings to the class.
Charlie, Class 4 said: "I think the biggest legacy which the Ancient Egyptians left was writing because they were the first people to write. They used symbols called hieroglyphics but today we use letters in the alphabet."
Denva, Class 4 said: "The Egyptians invented towers to help them tell the time by how the sun moves. Today we have clocks! They also invented lots of tools that doctors use today."
