Mummification

posted 27 Sep 2018, 06:26 by Bow Brickhill
Carrying on with our Ancient Egypt topic, and extending the fun we had with "Mummies" at the beginning of term, this week the children have started the process of mummifying a tomato !  They had to weight the "body", remove the "internal organs" (seeds!) and then treat the body with Natron (salt).  We will see how they turn out in two weeks time.  In the meantime, the children have then used this experience to write a set of instructions explaining exactly how to "mummify a tomato".
