Year 3 Towns Mummification

Towns Class had an exciting afternoon where they continued to learn about the Ancient Egyptian process of mummification.
They started their lesson debating whether they thought mummification was pointless and wrote their response in a speech bubble.
They then learnt about the different stages of mummification: cleaning, organ removal, brain removal, drying the body, stuffing the body, wrapping the body and placing the body in a coffin.
Next, they worked in groups to role play being High Priests and a Pharaoh - the High Priest had to mummify the Pharaoh using only one roll of toilet paper and some masking tape.
They finally had to debate again, after all their learning, if they thought mummification was pointless and write a final response in a second speech bubble.
