Tomb Searching

In social studies the sixth graders recently completed their study of Ancient Egypt. This year, due to a parishioner’s donation, each sixth grader was given the chance to create their very own papyrus, made from actual papyrus reeds grown along the banks of the Nile River in Egypt. They then created an Egyptian tomb complete with hieroglyphic wall drawings, pharaoh masks and jeweled collars, papyrus boats to be used in the afterlife, and of course a sarcophagus containing a golden mummy!

They also each created a “cartouche” an Egyptian nametag and learned how to write their names in hieroglyphics. When completed, they invited their little buddies, the first graders, to tour their tomb and to teach them some of the exciting things they learned about the Ancient Egyptians.
