These girls carefully remove the insides of their pharaoh. The pharaoh’s body is an orange and her head, a potato!

As part of their study of ancient civilizations, the fifth level students are researching and mummifying of a pharaoh of Ancient Egypt.  Students have learned about the process of mummification, and why it was so important in Ancient Egyptian culture.  In these pictures, students act as “wetyu,” or embalming assistants.  This is the first step in the mummification process.

On Tuesday, November 25, the students of the Monarch Room had a traditional Pilgrim feast.  The students learned about the hardships of the Pilgrims through reading the book, Eating the Plates.  In addition to eating such Pilgrim delicacies as succotash stew, corn soup, bannock cakes, bearberry jelly, and swizzle, the students also learned some Pilgrim phrases.  Children were given the name of an actual Pilgrim who was present at the First Thanksgiving to research and assumed his or her identity throughout the feast.  Fare thee well!

Student research is shared at the feast.

On November 24,  members of the Monarch Room got busy in the kitchen and baked pumpkin muffins.  With the help of parent volunteers,   students helped mix ingredients, fill muffin cups, and cleaned up.  The muffins will be served at our Pilgrim Luncheon on November 25!
