Sixth Grade Takes Care of Mummy

The sixth grade social studies students just “wrapped” up their study of Ancient Egypt. They created their own ancient Egyptian tomb complete with elaborate wall drawings, homemade papyrus paper covered with secret messages written in hieroglyphics, pharaoh masks and jeweled necklaces, and miniature papyrus boats for the afterlife.

Egyptian cartouches incorporated all of the sixth graders names written in hieroglyphics. Under the direction of social studies teacher Katie Schoenwetter, the students also created their own sarcophagus that, when opened, reveals a wrapped up Egyptian mummy! Art teacher Judy Mielcarek provided many additional items which the sixth grades created in Art class to complete the display and the unit on Ancient Egypt.
