Log on for these FREE live learning sessions every Friday. Perfect for kids in grades K–6 to dig deeper into world cultures, archaeology, and anthropology with demonstrations of hands-on projects to do at home.

Hosted in collaboration with the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration’s Community of Learning.

Ancient Egyptians wrote the name of the pharaohs in special sets of hieroglyphs called cartouches. Students will learn to identify cartouches of ancient Egyptian pharaohs inscribed on several artifacts in the Penn Museum collection. They will then get the chance to design and show off their own cartouches.

Recommended materials: Blank sheet of paper and a writing utensil.
