Museum Display

The 6th grade Social Studies class has been learning about the foundations of our modern society, the Ancient River Civilizations of India, Egypt, and China. They researched and created life-size replicas of artifacts found in these three regions, to display as an exhibit for an Ancient World Museum.  

Third graders made conservation posters to hang around our island community.
