I've heard of making life-size mummies during a unit on Egypt. I would like to do this, but I can't find any information on it. Has anyone done this or know anything about it?

ShopKo

I don't know if this is a national chain, but I buy my bookshelves from Shopko for about $20 (depending on the number of shelves). Big Lots is another good place to look.

Baskets & Tables

I use plastic baskets that stay under each student's chair. In them are their notebooks, journals, silent reading books, etc. The other supplies are kept in communal baskets in the supply closet.
