History Lesson with Lego

Ancient Egypt.
It all started with an Egyptian Lego minifigure...
Then I saw this fantastic Playmobil pyramid set on LMNOP and got the idea to build one out of Lego.

J was excited, so we discussed the plan and got working. 
We worked out (before we started thankfully) that the base must have equal sides, the design is actually quite stable and that the Egyptians were very clever people.
(we do need to look at our entry design at a later stage)


There were so many questions about tombs, mummys, kings, queens, treasure, moving large blocks without machinery, etc etc, so now we are looking into things in a bit more detail and might even make up our own heiroglyphics!
