This high quality handout has examples of Greek Patterns for your students use in the Art Room! I use this handout when I make paper mache Greek vases with my 4th graders, and with my Kindergarteners when we make Greek Temples.
~The Greek alphabet, the script of English today, is based on the Kemetic alphabet of Ancient Egypt/Kemet and the Upper Nile Valley of Ancient Africa. Ancient Egyptians called their words MDW NTR, or ‘Metu Neter,” which means divine speech. The Greeks called it, ‘hieroglyphics"- a Greek word. The etymology of hieroglyphics is sacred (hieros) carvings (glyph) ~*
