Mummifying Fish

The current topic for Class 3 is Ancient Egypt. Today, to enhance their experience, they have been mummifying fish. They started by gutting them and removing the internal organs. They then cleaned the fish out and packed them with salt. The fish were then wrapped in strips of fabric with amulets placed within each of the four layers of fabric they used. The final part of the process was to add a death mask. They will now be placed in a sarcophagus before going to their final resting place.
