Library of Congress

Monday I taught my kindergartners a little bit about library history via a powerpoint I created.  They were amazed to think that books didn’t always exist.  They loved the pictures of the different libraries around the world.  Most of all, however, they were fascinated by the library in Alexandria, Egypt, and an artist’s rendering of what the ancient library might have looked like.  As soon as they saw the Egyptian statues, they immediately thought, “Mummies!”  So nearly every child in the class checked out a book on mummies or Ancient Egypt.  Funny – I thought I was teaching them library history!

Here’s the powerpoint; if you’d like to use it , feel free – just share the credit with me.
