Papyrus and Rush

Papyri and rushes during the ancient Egyptian times went together like paper and pen do today. The rush, a type of cane, was the most commonly found writing tool whereas papyrus was the most commonly used writing surface.

Writing Like The Old Egyptians

Today most pupils do not view writing as the privilege it is. Most of modern day children just see in it nothing more than a necessity to be able to attend school. Therefore, writing on real papyrus with a rush will help them understand that writing in the olden days was not as easy and as comfortable as today. This will help most pupils understand that the art of writing has come a long way since antiquity.
Furthermore, your pupils will learn some useful skills and develop a more practical understanding of ancient history. Thus, providing a deeper educational value than classical teaching methods would do. Advantages
  • You will get 30 ready to use papyri
  • You will get 30 ready to use rushes
  • The product at hand is eco-friendly packaged
