Ancient Egyptian Artifacts Show and Tell

Instructions and Materials:

This is a hands on project where the children get to tell what is going on in the parshiot by showing the "props" that they made. These parshiot, Va'aiyera and Bo, are about the Ten Plagues. The props that we will be making correspond to to these plagues with a funny twist. All the props are put into a decorated box, (shoe box is perfect) that has the label Egyptian Artifacts. A package of 7 ounce translucent plastic cups will be used to store the "artifacts" in the "special box". All the props should be kept in their box and the children should play "Show and Tell" with their family and friends.
