Visiting Ancient Egypt

The Oaks second grade classes concluded their ten-week in-depth study of Ancient Egypt by creating a museum to showcase their learnings.  Students served as personal tour guides, leading guests through the exhibits and explaining their meaning.

The Second Grade Museum of Ancient Egypt featured interactive activities:   working a puzzle, writing names in hieroglyphs, wrapping linen bandages on a mummy, and searching for a treasure chest.  Earlier in the year they acted out the story of Joseph in Egypt.

Curtain Call

Last Friday, The Oaks Plus Drama Club presented “The Wonderful, Wacky Wizard of Oz,” an adaptation ofthe L. Frank Baum classic children’s novel.

The play was packed with punch lines and cute costumes.  It was an evening for all ages, grandparents and younger siblings alike.

 

Before the play, the audience enjoyed an opening act of all things art:  photography, speeches and artwork all presented by Oaks students.
