Mrs. Mahoney and Ms. Vozella’s sixth-grade classes at the East Somerville Community School have completed a unit in ancient Egypt in their social studies classes. Upon completion of the unit of study, students had to create a project based on an important part of Egyptian history. Students worked in small groups, and their projects consisted of a handmade visual model, as well as a poster board displaying their written work. Parents and guardians were invited to see the final oral presentations Jan. 17. There were a variety of topics discussed such as the pyramids, canopic jars, the mummification process, Nile River, hieroglyphics and Hatshepsut.
