Ninth Grade Academy Students Attend Educational Field Trip

The OESJ 9th Grade Academy students attended a field trip to the Albany Institute of History and Art to visit the Ancient Egyptian exhibit.  They created Ushabtis, viewed mummies and other artifacts, and enjoyed a Middle Eastern meal at a local restaurant.  This event tied in with their recent studies in Global History and a novel they read in English class entitled Pharaoh's Daughter by Julius Lester.
