Sixth graders at Oldfield Middle School spent the week learning about Ancient Egypt in Jennifer Klein’s class and used their knowledge to mummify one of their classmates using paper towel on Jan. 14. 
They learned about the mummification process and performed mourning rituals for their classmates as they lay with their arms crossed under “linens.” The lesson was a fun, hands-on activity that students appreciated and enjoyed.
