10YO: Ancient Egypt

10YO: Ancient Egypt

Last week the 10 YO black classroom transformed itself into a museum specializing in artifacts and information from ancient Egypt. Visitors could view student-made replicas of the Rosetta Stone, the pyramids of Giza, papyrus, reed pens, the tomb of Tutankhamun, a shaduf and irrigation system, and Osiris’ trip down the Nile into the afterlife. This project was the culmination of an inquiry unit examining the legacy of the ancient Egyptians and the impact this civilization has had on us. Once the artifacts were made, students assumed the role of experts and presented their artifacts to visitors from the 7 and 8-year-old classes. Students were pleasantly surprised at how well their visitors listened and the questions that were posed. The 10s ended their day proud and satisfied with their presentations and pleasantly exhausted.
