Fli-Rite Learning’s Dig into the Past:
Exploring Ancient Egypt and Simple Machines!
How did the ancient Egyptians build the pyramids without modern technology? Simple! Or at least the machines were. Join educator T.J. Shimeld as he becomes the Wordsmith of Wonder, Wendal Wandell, to explore ancient Egypt, the five simple machines, and mathematics. Wendal Wandell brings books to life with glorious costumes, magic, puppetry, and hands-on demonstrations to get kids excited about how books can transport us across time and space.
