This week was full of activities exploring the civilization of ancient Egypt. The students worked in groups to complete tasks ancient Egyptians would face with an ultimate goal of building the pyramid for their pharaoh. The group’s pharaoh would manage the year’s grain supply and trade bags of grain for supplies. The other students were the pharaoh’s subjects and had to use the supplies to complete a variety of tasks. Some of the tasks were designed to keep the empire running smoothly, while the other tasks helped the pharaoh reach his or her goal of building the pyramid. Over the course of a few days, the students had to work together and manage their time to get the tasks completed. Check out the pictures below!
During MMUN this week, the students from Ms. Sarah’s class and ours came together to learn more about the Sustainable Development Goals, commonly referred to as the Global Goals. In September 2015, world leaders committed to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. These consist of 17 goals to achieve three extraordinary things in the next 15 years; end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change. We set up stations around the classroom to allow the students to learn more about these 17 Global Goals. Afterwards, we discussed how each of these goals related to the MMUN various problems the are researching and will be discussing during the MMUN conference this year.
What a great week full of learning and fun!
