Week of November 16th-20th, 2015
Dear PACE Parents,
This week we learned about Mummies! We created mummies out of newspaper and bandages. We created a flow map to describe the mummification process. We learned about Egyptian burial beliefs and customs.
We also learned how Archeologists use modern technological tools to learn more about Ancient Egyptian culture, society, and their everyday lives. We discussed how tourists can be supportive of Egyptian artifacts, yet there is a serious concern when artifacts are damaged or taken out by tourists. At the same time, it is helpful to the Egyptians and their economy when people come to their country to see historical sites.
I am so thankful to work with such wonderful students and parents!
Have a great week!!!
