Geneva 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.
This year, the students celebrated Egypt Day on a Zoom call due to the social distancing guidelines caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The students did a great job presenting their Egyptian projects on our Zoom call. We missed our Egypt Assembly, but our second graders pulled off a great day of learning and presenting. Well done!” second grade teacher Susan Naiser said.
“As teachers, we value learning about civilizations other than our own, but also take this opportunity to point our students to the one true God, the creator of the heavens and the earth. We have great discussions in class about how our beliefs as Christians differ from the Ancient Egyptians while still enjoying learning about Egypt,” second grade teacher Amelia O’Brien said.
