Week of November 30th-December 4th, 2015

Dear PACE Parents,

This week in PACE we learned about the Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. Religion played a big part in the lives of the Ancient Egyptians. There were over 2,000 different gods and goddesses. These gods could take different forms. Many had the body of a human and the head of an animal! The students had fun learning about their myths and legends.
