Dear parents of students in grades 5-7,
Your child’s class is going on a field trip! This is an excellent chance to further your child’s learning outside of the classroom.
Students have been studying Ancient Egyptian History. At the Charleston Museum, students will attend a special presentation called, “Tomb Travelers” to learn about daily life along the Nile River, discover the steps of the mummification process, handle ancient artifacts, and learn about Egyptian dress. Following the presentation, students will participate in a self-guided scavenger hunt that will allow them to see mummified Egyptian remains and other Egyptian items that are part of the museum’s collection. Students should bring a packed lunch the day of the field trip. Please DO NOT order lunch from Food for Thought- Charleston on the day of the trip.
