In our history topic of the Egyptians, Miss Cartin's class looked at the mummification process which was very important at that time. First we created our own mummy out of modrock and a sarcophagus out of card. We decorated the sarcophagus using symbols important to Egyptian faith such and the scarab beetle. Then we started the process. We washed the mummy with salt and oil, wrapped it in linen bandages and placed it in the sarcophagus with some precious jewels before taking it around the community in a procession to show respect.
We also created our own Egyptian death masks that pharaoh’s would wear during the mummification process.
