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.
