Mrs. Elliott’s sixth-grade class has been studying Ancient Egypt. They learned about the process of mummification and the fixation the Egyptians had with the afterlife.  Students learned that most Egyptians spent their entire life preparing for their death. In conjunction with their studies, students created their own book of the dead, mummy, ornately designed sarcophagus and they learned to “Walk like an Egyptian.”
