Day 66 / 102 - Week 15 Presentations
This week, I was impressed with both my children and their choice of topics. My son recreated an Egyptian pyramid burial tomb out of Legos. He explained to his class a little bit about the mummification process and what went into the tombs. There were corridors (to deter grave robbers) as well as treasures and often modes of transportation to the afterlife. I'm not sure the picture does it justice. He briefly explained the largest ever pyramid tomb was the one that belonged to the pharaoh Khufu and described its dimensions.
My daughter spoke on origami. (A skill, I guess, she taught herself earlier in the week. I missed it.) She told her class a little about the history of the paper folding art, and then taught her class how to make a dog and a flower.
Of course, our main goal has always been to learn and refine public speaking skills. That in and of itself is more important than the choice of topics.
