Mummified Oranges

Mummified Oranges

As part of their study of Ancient Egypt, Ms. Kaufman’s 6th graders created “mummies” with oranges substituting as Pharaohs! Taking on the roles of priests, the students scooped the “organs” out of their Pharaoh, refilled it with natron to preserve the “body” and then wrapped it in linen. The mummies now lie in their tombs, and the students will see how they look after break!  see photos
