Art, design and history come together in this ‘Thank you’ card-making project dedicated to the Egyptian sun god, Ra. Children will learn about paper-making, the origins of writing and about Ancient Egyptian art and culture, expressed through the art and artefacts discovered in King Tutankhamun’s tomb.

Hurrah for Ra! comprises three one-hour lessons in total, starting with a session on Ancient Egyptian history, stylised art and paper-making, which sets up the historical context and the greeting card project.

Supporting resources are provided including Tut’s Treasures, a fun Powerpoint presentation about Ancient Egypt and the artefacts discovered in Tutankhamun’s tomb.
