The sixth-grade students always study a unit of Ancient Egypt during their social studies. Students get to create a Sarcophagus (It is a box-like funeral receptacle for a corpse, most commonly carved in stone, and displayed above ground, though they may be buried). The students at Art City create their sarcophagus to represent who they are and what they like to do.
