This week: The Princess Who Became a King

posted Mar 11, 2013, 8:35 AM by Jason Brunken
This month, the Grade 6 class will begin delving into ancient world history. We will touch on Ancient China, Egypt, and Greece. Of course, the students' website projects are also about ancient civilizations, but those will be posted soon.

This week, we are reading The Princess Who Became a King. This selection is about one of the only women to become Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, Hatshepsut. Hatshepsut had an interesting life. She grew up daughter of a great Pharaoh, married her brother when she was just 15, managed to out-compete other men to take over the throne when her brother/husband died, and became a successful and great Pharaoh in her own right. Her story is amazing and historically remarkable.

Also this week will be vocabulary, writing, grammar, and spelling practice. A spelling test will be given on Friday. Please remind your child to study. Below are the vocabulary and spelling words for this week as well as some grammar practice.
