The hall and classrooms of the sixth-grade students at East Meadows Elementary looked like a museum on October 19, 2011.  The students displayed various projects they have been working on at home.  There were sphinxes, pyramids, sarcophagi, canopic jars and crooks and flails galore.  Many of these items were made from edible items such as marshmallows, caramels, rice krispies, sugar cubes and even cake and bread dough.  They molded clay and play dough.  They cut and colored and glued paper.  There were diagrams of the inside of a pyramid, reports on the Rosetta Stone and other such topics.  The younger grades and parents were allowed to walk through the classrooms and enjoy their masterpieces.
