Mrs. Alison Newman’s Sixth Grade Social Studies classes made Scarabs. Scarabs were made during Egyptian times. They were named and given characteristics.
RMS students in Newman’s Social Studies classes were given the chance to make these good luck charms. River rocks were supplied by Newman. Kids picked out their rocks and then spray painted them in gold.
The next day, the kids looked at some examples and then took colored Sharpies to color their own. Felt was glued to the bottom, so that the rock would be protected as well as the surface where it was placed. Several students have kept them throughout their school years.
Scarabs may be brought in for tests. Newman will be giving extra credit on the test in two weeks if students have their Scarabs. Scarabs will help you to have good luck.
“I will always remember making Scarabs in this class. It was a lot of fun!” said Sixth Grader Dane G.
