Sixth grade students at Long Beach Middle School traveled back in time to explore Ancient Egypt. On Dec. 21, they displayed an assortment of projects as the culmination of their social studies unit on early river valley civilizations with an “Egypt Exhibit” in the school’s library.

Students developed informative and visual works that portrayed aspects of Ancient Egypt while also incorporating other subject areas. They wrote books about famous historical figures that demonstrated their knowledge of the subject matter and wrote poetry about life on the Nile River. They constructed three-dimensional models of the pyramids, afterlife artifacts, canopic jars, sarcophagus, and more. Proudly, they displayed their knowledge of papyrus, hieroglyphics, the mummification process, gods and goddesses, jewelry and sports representative of Ancient Egypt.  

Sixth-grade classes had the opportunity to tour the exhibit and view their peers’ work and read the written summaries that accompanied each project on display.
