7th Grade World History Students Create a Sarcophagus


Mrs. Cobb’s West Plains Middle School World History 7th grade students are learning about Egypt. The students researched Egyptian customs and culture then created a Sarcophagus.

A traditional decorated Sarcophagus provided a means of helping the dead stay connected to the living in the afterlife. The student created Sarcophagus included ten items the students would want to be buried with, actual events from their lives, future events, and their name in hieroglyphics.
