     On April 3rd the sixth graders went on a field trip to the California Science Center. They went into the King Tut exhibit, where they learned more about Egypt. "We wanted to visit the exhibit because it has artifacts that will never be seen again in America after this exhibit," said Ms. Heikes, a sixth grade teacher. Items were sent from Egypt to the California Science Center for a short period of time, and the sixth graders were fortunate to have the chance to see it. Jaxon Klempner, a sixth grade student, said, "We saw a mummy, weapons, jewelry, and the King Tut exhibit." The students also learned the games they played and how they mummified people in Ancient Egypt, in addition to what they already learned in school. This sixth grade field trip was an once in a lifetime opportunity until the exhibit is over and the artifacts go back to Egypt.
