nesting maps - social studies- could use for Me on the Map Unit!
"My town is inside my state, which is inside the US which is inside North America..." Genius! Great to teach geography to young kids.
These nesting map jars help teach 1st graders about geography and where they come from. The biggest one is the entire world, then North America, then the United States, and finally, whatever state you live it, followed by their own individual house! They are nesting jars because each fits inside the previous one. Students will enjoy coloring their country, state, and world before attaching them to the outside of the cans. -dg

Deir el Bahri mortuary temple complex
The ancient Egyptians documented everything. Business and trade were no different. According to information unearthed by archeologists, the land called Punt was a great source of riches and slaves and exotic spices and wild animals. From the descriptions that survived, the land of Punt was a peaceful and prosperous country that seemed to have a wide variety of highly valued goods to trade. The only problem is that nobody today knows where Punt was.

Frankincense and Myrrh. This is a fine relief of members of Hatshepsut's trading expedition to the mysterious 'Land of Punt' from this pharaoh's elegant mortuary temple at Deir El-Bahri. In this scene, Egyptian soldiers bear tree branches and axes.
