Charlotte Country Day school, Charlotte, NC has a World Cultures page for upper-school students. Four students wrote on Cleopatra.

Natasha Monzolevskaya, Meredith Andrews, Catherine Babcock and Barbara Muzzillo .

A Woman Called Egypt a grade-school project of varied contents. The history is spotty (Ptolemy I Soter did not "ally" himelf with Alexander), but the charming mini-play cannot but provoke a smile.

Mini bio by Erez and Natalie grade 5/6 students at the The International School of Amsterdam, part of a larger Egypt Project.

Walter McCabe's (a school-kid?) has very many Cleopatra pages. The site has large images, but needs a spell-check.

"The Alendian war broke out, Alexander lost and fell on his sword and Cleopatra was captured by Octavilian. Than comitted suicide."
