Second Graders Bring Ancient Egypt to Life

Geneva School second grade student Macy Egli shares what she learned about Ancient Egypt as Nathan Player waits to present at a recent Grammar School Assembly.

Geneva School second graders bring history to life with their study of Ancient Egypt each year. They study the daily life, government leaders, religion, architecture, language, arts and recreation of the ancient Egyptians. A favorite project in which the students engage is learning about the mummification process. Each class experiences this process first-hand by mummifying their own “Pharaoh Chicken.”

In addition, the students take the Egyptian Team Challenge which is an exam over the curriculum they have studied. The top three scores in each class participate in one final competition which is considered the top honor in second grade.
