Long Beach Middle School’s sixth-grade social studies department showcased its annual Ancient Egypt Museum in the building’s library. Students conducted research, selected topics that were of specific interest to them and collaborated with classmates to develop projects that featured various aspects of ancient Egypt.

Each project involved a book component for which students demonstrated their knowledge of the subject matter through writing and illustrations. They also created displays and presented details about their studies to those who visited their galleries for a museum walk.

Among the featured themes were the pyramids, papyrus, afterlife, gods and goddesses, hieroglyphics and the mummification process.
