In social studies we are currently talking about ancient Egypt. A topic discussed the other day revolved around ancient Egyptians religious beliefs and mummification. We watched an awesome clay-mation video on explaining the process. In addition we discussed how the process involved placing the organs of the person being mummified into canopic jars. I have invited the student to make their own canopic jars as extra credit, which will be due next week Wednesday (see pictures below). Click on to access the directions.
