3. Student Showcase: Grade 2 Exit Point
This week, Grade 2 completed their exit point for the unit: Ancient Tombs and Treasures. This unit focused on aspects of Ancient Egyptian Culture and History. For their exit point, grade 2 gave a presentation on the mummification process used by Egyptians from the past.
G2 students were very excited and engaged throughout the exit point and went surprisingly deep into the culture and history of Ancient Egypt.
One focus point in the unit is exploring the tombs of the pharaohs. We talked about mummies and the Egyptians belief in the afterlife. For our exit point we created an Egyptian tomb and mummy to show to other classes.
Throughout building our tomb every student was working hard. Students decorated the classroom walls, created a coffin, and changed a skeleton into a mummy. Some students told other classes about the journey to the afterlife, and other students talked about what they created for the exit point.
One of Grade 2’s takeaways was that life in the past was very different. They learned about how children had fun without technology.
