The sixth grade held their Egypt Walk on Wednesday, October 15, 2014.  This event is a culmination of their unit on Egypt. Students made projects at home to show off the things they had learned.  They made sarcophagi, canopic jars, crooks and flails, sphinxes and pyramids made from clay, candy, cereal, wood, Lego’s and other such mediums.  They transformed their classrooms into tiny museums.  They made Egypt’s flag. They drew cross sections of pyramids. They wrote reports on the process of mummification. They learned how to make papyrus. They shared many other facts about Egypt.  Parents and the rest of the school were permitted to come walk through their classroom museums and admire their work.
