Egyptian Gods and Goddesses

Dear Friend:

I miss you so much. School is going great. Right now we are learning about Egyptian gods and goddesses: differences, similarities, and how they are compared. Egyptian gods and goddesses play an equal role in Egyptian mythology. Egyptian gods and goddesses were kept separate but often grouped in pairs to represent the dual nature of life. Female deities were kept separate from males and had their own temples and followers. Goddesses were also creator deities and protectors of the pharaohs in the form of a vulture, cobra, or lioness. Gods and goddesses all stood for something different. Some stood for earth, sky, sun, moon, music, dance, joy, and many more. For example, my favorite goddesses named Nut, stood for the sky. Animals also sometimes represented gods and goddesses. Some pictures show gods and goddesses with a human body and an animal head. I have learned that Egyptian gods and goddesses are very similar but also different from each other. I have learned so much in this Egypt research project about Egyptian gods and goddesses. Hope to see you soon!

Love your friend,

Alexanne O’Dell

Although gods and goddesses were kept separate, they were often grouped in pairs to represent the dual nature of life. All gods and goddesses represented different things. Gods or goddesses often represented animals, earth, sky, music, dance, and many other things.
