Making Egyptian jewelry with paper and magazines:
[Daniel and Andersen]
[Cristina always sticks her tongue out when she works!]
[Our Egyptian pose with our Egyptian jewelry]
Writing our non-fiction research papers. I was beyond impressed with how they did with this!
[Carlos coloring his final copy. He likes to stick out his tongue too. May be it makes you think better, and I didn't get the memo.]
[Amanda and Brian]
For expedition night we made a model of a pyramid out of boxes. Then painted it. With mud. I have to admit, the kid in me REALLY loved it. The teacher in me saw mud on the walls. I was a kid that day.
[Our pyramid ready to paint.]
[We had some help! Mrs. Kerrie, the art teacher, and Josh, a guy from the work team that comes every year before expeditions to help up from Mosaic church in Ohio. Couldn't have done it without them.]
[What a radient smile from Abigail.]
[I got a little mud on my pants that day. They now have splattered paint and splattered mud. They will now be my '3rd grade pants.']
[Cristina looks less than thrilled.]
[The finished product. Doesn't it look like the real thing? ha.]
I will leave you with a final picture that has nothing to do with expeditions. But it might go down for my favorite picture of a student. Andersen was just enjoying a delicious cupcake from Elena's birthday, and ended up with a dirty 'stache. Classic Andersen.
