This is the inside of a basic pyramid.
First, there is king's chamber. After the king's
chamber, there is the gallery of the king's and
queen's stuff. After that there is queen's chamber
then a passage and finally underground chamber.
The Sphinx is a human headed lion carved from a natural rock. But there is a weird thing in the sphinx. Did you realize that the sphinx has no nose? At first, the sphinx had it. But there was a time where there was war in Egypt. The archaeologists doesn't really know, but for their research, they said it was because of Napoleon's bomb's fault. Or, before in ancient times, they practiced the sphinx as the target for hunting. Then who gets to shoot their pin on the nose gets to be the best.
The Egypt gods
Do you know that in Egypt, there is more than 2000 gods? Most of them had an animal's head. They made all of these gods for their safety. Some of them are for no flood, plenty of food, and other things.
OK. Now, we'll ask you some questions. If you guess/answer it right, we'll give you a candy or chocolate!!

Even though, Egypt is a hot and dry place, people still had food to eat. But it was really hard to plant and harvest food like crops. Wheat was used to make bread, but there were also ingredients added like flour, water and yeast. Both rich and poor citizens could eat it because it was the main food and was very important. They also ate meat but they ate different levels of meat depending on their social status. High class meat usually consisted of cow and sheep.
Thanks for listening!

Drinks were the most important of meals. Rich people usually drank wine but often it was beer. When somebody held a party, it was called a "House of Beer". The beer was homemade.
The place where usually Egyptians live is the desert. Right next to the desert, there is a river called The Nile. The Nile River is important to Egyptians because if there were no Nile river, they won't be able to grow crops, have drinking water, the desert will be really dried up.
