The students had a mummifying experience today with their social studies curriculum, Curiosity Chronicles! They were excited to read and observe artwork depicting sarcophaguses and mummies, as well as learning about why the people of Ancient Eygpt chose to preserve some people this way.
They also tied in some science wither their own classroom project, “Mummify an Apple Experiment”. Half of an apple was put in the following solutions: water, vinegar, salt, and salt and baking soda. The students will observe what happens to the apples at different intervals over the next two weeks and will record their observations.
But what took the cake with the students today had to be their rendering of a sarcophagus using a shoebox and toilet paper to represent the mummy inside. They found a special “home” for their new “friend” and were so excited to share him!
