Howard Carter and Tutankhamun

Class 6 were archaeologists yesterday and apprehensively entered the tomb of Tutankhamun to discover the treasures that awaited them inside!

The children really enjoyed learning about Howard Carter’s fascinating story of discovery and re-enacting part of it in the school gym!

Today the children wrote diary entries about what happened in the first person and carefully thought about how Howard Carter would have felt if they had been in his shoes 92 years ago.

If you know what happened after the discovery was made and Tutankhamun’s treasures were revealed… do you think a curse was put upon those involved or was it just very bad luck?

    I think that it was a curse but not necessarily because they just went into the tomb but because they lifted the death mask and broke all of his bones and that annoyed him.

    I think the workers caught a disease because i think it is scientific and therefor I believe that curses don’t exist.
