Mummifying FIsh

As part of their topic on Ancient Egypt the children have been learning about mummification. They have studied the process by mummifying sardines. Firstly, they scooped out the insides of the sardines and then packed them into tubs of salt. Last week the children renewed the salt in the tubs to allow the drying process to continue. Shortly, the sardines will be removed from the salt and wrapped in bandages before going to their final resting place.
