Year 3 started off learning about Ancient Egypt this week by turning some oranges into mummies! Just like real Ancient Egyptian embalmers we started off by taking out all of the gooey insides. Then, we filled up our oranges with salt, just like the embalmers dried out bodies with natron. Finally, we wrapped up our mummies in bandages. We'll keep them somewhere warm and check back on them in a few weeks to see how the mummification process is going!
