Wyoming Area Catholic students complete study on Egypt

Mrs. Toomey’s sixth grade reading class completed a story about the country of Egypt in Northern Africa. The story invited students to learn and experience the customs and traditions of this ancient land. Students were divided into groups and given particular topic to research such as levels of society, Greek cuisine, mummies, pyramids, games, homes and ornaments. The students demonstrated their research in the form of skits and projects. The two pictures reveal the secrets of the pyramids and the delicious Greek cuisine. Pictured are:
