Quest - Ancient Egypt

We shared our initial ideas about ancient Egypt.

We learnt about mummification and created Canopic jars.

We created mind maps to present our ideas about life in ancient Egypt.

We created famous landmarks from Egypt out of paper and recreated a pyramid as a class! We also made snake headbands.

We explored the process of mummification and turned each other into mummies!

We mummified fruit using salt. We left the fruit for a few days and found that the mummified fruit dried up (it was preserved), unlike the fresh fruit!

An expert on ancient Egypt led a workshop for the day. We dressed up as ancient Egyptians and learnt about mummification, the pyramids and lots more!
