P3: Ancient Egypt topic (2017)

As part of their topic “Ancient Egypt” Primary 3 followed a recipe to make traditional Egyptian date balls. They had to read the recipe themselves, prepare the ingredients, follow instructions and even tidy up. It was messy but fun. The children all tried eating them but it seems date balls are like marmite – you love them or hate them!  Lucas thought “The best part was eating them because they were totally delicious!”  but Dylan D had other thoughts “they were disgustingly sticky to make and didn’t taste much better, I’m glad I’m not an Egyptian.” Sean loved the date balls and said he thought the “Egyptians had tasty snacks.”
