3rd graders learned about Ancient Egypt through a short video. They learned that Egyptians believe in an afterlife when they die. To prepare the body for the afterlife the deceased body goes through a mummification process. Once the body is turned into a mummy, it is placed into Sarcophagus that holds the body for the rest of eternity. The Sarcophagus’s were works of art themselves encrypted with hieroglyphs and pictures.
3rd graders did a great job designing their Egyptian Sarcophagus. Students also wrote their names in hieroglyphics down the center of their sarcophagus.
