As part of the sixth-grade social studies curriculum Nelson Mandela/Dr. Hosea Zollicoffer School students have been studying ancient Egypt. As a culminating project to represent their understanding of what they learned, students constructed various projects from pyramids to mummification, from scenes of the Nile River to learning about the different pharaohs. They presented their projects on Friday, March 22, 2024.
