Making Pulleys

Our theme for October has been Ancient Egypt. Along with learning about the Nile, Cairo and pharaohs, we have been learning about the pyramids of Egypt.

3000 years ago, technology was a little different which made the job of building the pyramids a little more complicated. There were no cranes or machines to do the heavy lifting. Pulleys were used as a method to make the lifting easier. Check out the pictures of 3rd class trying to make a pulley to lift one of their books!
