Egypt Week! 

This week the third grade students in Julie Merriam’s and Kate Zeller’s third grade classes engaged in an exciting study of Egypt, learning about scale and using multiplication squares as they built pyramids, comparing weather conditions in Cape Elizabeth and Cairo, building boats to test strengths and weaknesses, studying fashion as it relates to climate in ancient Egypt and present day Maine, and much more.  The week culminated with a presentation of their work to parents and friends and an Egyptian funeral procession complete with the burying of each student’s sarcophagus in a pyramid.
