Children in Wisbech brought the River Nile to life by creating it out of cardboard, paper and plastic on a tabletop.
Volunteers and staff from Wisbech and Fenland Museum worked for a day with seven and eight-year-olds and their teachers at Ramnoth Junior School.
They shared knowledge and artefacts for handling linked with the museum's summer exhibition on art, life and monuments of ancient Egypt.
The carefully detailed model, which was made from a range of materials such as cardboard, paper and plastic, was transported to the museum and put on display for half-term.
School vice-principal, Sally Kirby, said: "The community artwork project was a wonderful way to bring the year three topic on rivers to life.
