Fifth and sixth graders in the PACE program at Woodmoor Elementary are discovering ancient Egypt, her rulers, culture, religion and geography. The face casting is to help the students better understand what mummification might have felt and looked like. The students will paint the face masks once they are dry. To further enrich their study, a field trip is planned to the King Tut exhibit at the Pacific Science Center later this month.

PACE (Parents Active in Cooperative Education) at Woodmoor is a Northshore school district enrichment program in which teachers and parent volunteers work together in a cooperative structure. PACE students benefit from an enriched education experience thanks to high parent involvement, innovative teaching techniques, enhanced curriculum and a sense of community among families.
