James is continuing to study Ancient Egypt and in the process learn how to write about it. This week they focused on Pharoahs and the various Deity the Egyptians worshipped. James was asked to answer this question in an essay: “If you were Pharoah, what would be the biggest concern for your people? How would you lead them?”
Here is the essay from our “Boy King”
MY ANCESTORS GAVE ME THE RIGHT TO RULE THESE PEOPLE. UNFORTUNATELY THEY ARE STARVING AND OVERWORKED. FROM THIS DAY FORWARD ALL THE PEOPLE WILL EAT IN MY HOME AND ENJOY THE FEAST. THEY WILL ATTEND SCHOOL. THE SCHOOL WILL TEACH EACH CHILD. EACH FAMILY WILL CONTRIBUTE HALF OF THEIR YEILD FROM THEIR TRADE TO MY HOME. THE REST THEY MAY USE AS THEY NEED TO. I SHALL REVISE THIS IF NECESSARY.
THE PHAROAH JAMES
