Ancient Egypt- a Deeper Understanding Through Art & Ancient Artifacts

On September 22nd, 2015 Ms. Fisk’s Global History classes were lucky enough to have two guests teach about Ancient Egypt: Ms. Carol Hockett, a docent at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, and Ms. Jennifer Carrington, an Egyptologist.

The pair brought in ancient artifacts from Egypt including an amulet and a scarab, which they allowed students to touch, while informing the students of each artifact’s purpose. Ms. Hockett and Ms. Carrington composed a slide show of images highlighting Ancient Egyptian artwork, religion, writing, and mummification. Ms. Carrington, a true archaeologist who has worked in Egypt, was able to field an array of questions that students had, and were unafraid to ask. 

Ms. Hockett and Ms. Carrington were able to explain the Ancient Egyptian culture in a fun, engaging, and academic manner that made the content “come to life,” as one student reflected on his experience. All-in-all, this was a day few students will forget.
