Mummies Made in...New Mexico???
Exploring Ancient Egypt the Hands-On Way!
The Royal Embalmers' Assistants (Mrs. Henley and Mrs. Bowdoin) shopped for the appropriate supplies.
We read the book Mummies Made in Egypt by Aliki. This student-friendly text provided all of the necessary details for our Royal Embalmers to begin their work. Mrs. Bowdoin became the Royal Scribe and kept track of the process.
The royal fowl were weighed. Data was collected and recorded into notebooks.
The corpses were inspected, dried and readied for the natron.
