« 6th Grade Field Trip - "Discovery of King Tut" Exhibit »

6th Grade students attended the Natural History Museum’s “Discovery of King Tut” exhibit last week, to enhance the curriculum of the students who are studying ancient civilizations and researching Ancient Egypt and Kush. At the museum, students learned about the British archeologist, Howard Carter, who discovered the tomb after searching for it for six years. Once the tomb was opened, there was a vast array of Egyptian archeological finds that astounded the world! These included treasures of golden masks, a large sarcophagus with layers of inner coffins, chairs, boats, food, and even mummified remains including King Tut himself. Even though the items were replicas of the originals for this exhibit, the historical understanding was important to the students. After touring the museum, the students watched an interesting IMAX 3-D documentary about mummies.
