Magic, juggling and history


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for new ways to develop my work in schools. Juggling and magic went on in Ancient Egypt for example. Is Ancient Egypt on the National Curriculum and studied in schools at any age group?

I could teach the kids the tricks which appear to be depicted on ancient tomb paintings. It may bring the subject to life a little?

Also Ancient Greece and the Romans - what age group, if any, are taught about these people?

Thanks Dan for the link. It's useful to know what the official line is. I'm still mulling over ideas. I wonder whether I could pluck tricks etc from various periods in history? eg I could first give a juggling demo. Next I could give all the pupils in the class or classes a copy of the ancient tomb painting depicting juggling. They could all get up and have a go at the simple tricks which appear to be depicted. They could take the pictures home with them and show their friends and family how the Ancient Egyptians juggled! Who knows, they may never forget.

I shall resume my pondering.
