We built mummies using gauze, while I read the Ms. Frizzle book on Ancient Egypt. (I highly recommend this book!) This activity is found in Ancient Egypt History Pockets.
Our finished mummies. Each body was placed in several colorful coffins. So our project represents two separate boxes and then the actual body.
We used cut up gauze. My flash bleached it.
Our blocks were not perfect, but the girls enjoyed them. Caty, Lydia and I worked with them.
Which you can stream on Netflix right now. I was always taught that slaves built the pyramids. Well that is wrong! The workers were actually paid....with beer and bread. This movie also show the inside of pyramids with robotic cameras. It was a very interesting show!!!
Next week we will be learning about the homes and daily life in Ancient Egypt.
