Last Thursday in Geveret Rogozen’s class she surprised us by dressing up like a pharaoh and treating us like we were real slaves. It scared when she walked in. She screamed. ” Slaves get over here now your going to work.” We went down to the court yard and made walls out of bricks. They had to be perfectly straight or else she would tell us to redo the entire brick. First we would have to have hay, sand, and water and mix it with the brick. I did good on making my brick. She had little taskmasters checking the work of our bricks if they were good enough. This whole was to show a little of what the slavery was like for the Jews in ancient Egypt. It felt weird and funny working as a slave. When she walked in, I was laughing. It helped me understand what the life was for Jew slaves in ancient Egypt. I felt mad because everyone was bossing me around giving orders like a dog. I am so glad that I am not a slave today.
