In ancient Egypt, the pyramids served an important function - to be the final resting places for many of its pharahos, or rulers. It took the inventive minds of architects and the hard work of thousands of laborers to create these intriguing monuments. From these famous structures, children (agres 4+) can learn much about the architecture, history, and culture of the ancient civilization that built them. Children can build their own Pyramids using our Pyramid Builder Set (6.30). They will not only build the shape of the pyramid, but the corridors and chambers inside.
