Quietly I was sitting in class, painting my model shabti.
'OK everyone, it's time to pack up,' announced my teacher. When everything was cleared away, I sat and stared into my golden shabti's eyes. Suddenly, something strange started to happen. In a bright flash I was teleported back in time over five thousand years to Ancient Egypt. I was dressed as a slave and part of a big group who were dragging a cube of limestone across the desert. Suddenly, a whip cracked loudly and a mean man shouted at us. It was my teacher! He was the slave driver!
