The British Museum has some great resources, including photos of relevant objects in its online collection, to help pupils explore the significance of the lotus flower as a symbol of rebirth in Ancient Egyptian life.

So we've brought these together in our pupil-friendly guide to the lotus flower on our kids' site Show Me.
There you'll find a brief guide to the symbolism of the lotus flower in Ancient Egyptian life, a link to the British Museum's collection of objects and their Ancient Egypt microsite.
There's also a link in the Show Me feature to CLEO's wonderful video step-by-step guide to making an origami lotus flower. Just don't forget to make your flower out of blue-green paper as the Ancient Egyptians believed this colour also represented new life.
