Ceramic Sarcophagi

Thanks to Mr Post and his blog for our inspirations!  The King Tut exhibit came to the Denver Art Museum and off we went!  I have not taken a field trip with kids in a very long time.  So I figured go big!  I took our 4th, 5th and 6th graders! 6 buses, parents and almost 400 kids!  Next field trip I will take only one grade level.  It was a great success and we came back inspired to create!  I hope that you  all can take advantage of your local art museums.

6th graders made sarcophagi time capsules.  Inside they placed a letter to their “older” self.  They even left a secret message to themselves in Egyptian hieroglyphics.
