The Wacky Word Show - Gr 1-4 Language

Ancient Egyptians

Mummy mayhem ensues as Zoey and Lukas explore the many ways we can communicate with pictures, symbols and pictograms, just like ancient Egyptians. A graphic designer drops by and shows how a simple image can convey a message or idea. Lukas tries to program Booboo Bot to decipher some custom-made hieroglyphics but the bot gets it all hilariously wrong. In the game show, teams of kids have to find pictograms that fit the categories Lukas gives them. Zoey discovers that languages like Chinese and Japanese also use symbols in their writing. It's mummies versus explorers in the challenge where teams of kids hunt for scrolls in a darkened pyramid and then decode the emoji sentences written on them.
