Mystery of History–Ramses II (Ramses the Great)

I had a hard time coming up with a hands on activity to go along with Ramses II (Ramses the Great).  Then I decided we should build the façade of one of Ramses II’s greatest buildings a temple called Abu Simbel.  We made the façade roughly to scale vertically compared to that little Lego mini figure.  The length was WAY off scale.  I think the length of the building was only 1/4 of the length.  Sammy was still able to grasp that the building is HUGE and that they built it with out any machines.
