MRS.LEAH- Hi! I’m Mrs.Leah, I’m your social studies teacher and I’m here to make your lives miserable. GEORGE- That’s not nice where are you from anyway? MRS. LEAH- A place far, far away… THE PAST! SALLY- Whoa! Tell us more. MRS. LEAH- Then follow me on a journey to Egypt! OFF AND AWAY WE GO!
SALLY- Where are we? MRS. LEAH- Egypt did you hear me the first time. I’m goingto take you back to present time if you don’t start listening. SALLY- Sorry! MRS. LEAH- Okay then, we are here to learn about the artisans, there were many types of artisans like, carpenters, jewelers, leatherworkers, metalworkers, painters, potters, sculptors, and weavers. GEORGE- WHOA! That’s a lot of artisan! MRS. LEAH- There were this many artisans because artisans specialized in any one of a number of craft.
MRS. LEAH- Artisans were in the lower middle of the social pyramid. Most of them didn’t get the respect they deserved. SALLY-Artisans should have gotten more respect. GEORGE- I agree! MRS.LEAH- Unlike scribes they hardly ever got respect from higher classes. Only artisans that became masters at their craft were honored for there work. SALLY- If artisans were so skilled why didn’t they have little respect. MRS. LEAH- That’s a great question. They had less respect because they were closer to the bottom near the peasants. Art did not touch every part of peoples day unlike religion.
MRS. LEAH- Most artisans had a small house with their families.Their houses were usualy rectangle and hardly 10 yardsback. SALLY- Wow! That’s not big at all. MRS. LEAH- Their were 3 rooms from front to the back. One room was a workout or a room to house animals. After was the living room. Then was a room was divided into a kitchen and a bedroom. The roof was sometimes used for another place to sleep or work. GEORGE- That was such a small house!
MRS.LEAH- Pharoahs called hundres of arrtisans at once to get them to work on many royal projects. SALLY- Finally, they get some respect by higher classes. MRS. LEAH- Yes, artisans also created fine artwork that (often) covered many temples, royal tombs, and other monuments. GEORGE- Where did they work? MRS. LEAH- Great question! They worked in large groups to complete projects like engraving, paintings, and hieroglyphics. SALLY- What is hieroglyphics? MRS. LEAH- Hieroglyphics is writing consisting of hieroglyphs.
MRS. LEAH-Okay we are back can you two relate the artisans to the school’s social pyramid. Relate artisans to principal, assistant principal, office staff, teachers, student council, and students. GEORGE- Artisans are like student council members because they don’t get much respect from higher classes. SALLY- Student council! MRS. LEAH- Great job! Are you ready to go home now? SALLY- But, I want to learn more. GEORGE- Me too! MRS. LEAH- Tomorrow we will learn more by you two writing a report about what you learned.
