LAKE WALES – Students are “wrapped up” with excitement about the Book Fair going on this week (Oct. 14-18) at Janie Howard Wilson Elementary.
Students (front l-r) Phillip Brown, Austin Jarvis; (back l-r) teacher Sierra Gibbs, Tykem Johnson, Austin Ramirez and Mon’Tavies Walker were inspired to create a life-size mummy after learning the Book Fair theme of “Reading Oasis: A Cool Place to Discover Hot Books.”
“When I told students about the Book Fair theme, they made a connection with pyramids and mummies. They volunteered to make a mummy to display in the book fair. We borrowed the skeleton model from our science lab, and created the mummy using toilet paper, gauze and tape,” said Gibbs.
