Wording of this Handout:
The pyramids i Egypt were built as tombs for the Pharaohs (or kings).
When Joseph arrived in Egypt the pyramids had already been standing for hundreds of years
The pyramids used to be covered in limestone, so they were flat.
They used to be colored, and they reflected the sunlight across the land.
The largest pyramid at Giza was 481 feet tall before its top was removed.
The Great Pyramid covers more ground than the Louisiana Superdome.
The Great Pyramid is solid rock except for some passageways.
It is made of 2,500,000 gigantic blocks of stone.
Nobody knows for sure how the blocks were lifted.
