Product Description
A great activity for studying Ancient Egypt or make mummies for Halloween. In this activity, students learn about the mummification process by making apple mummies.

In the first part, students test different salt solutions to see which works the best to preserve apple slices. They also read about the science of mummification to understand what is happening during the process.

In the second part, students choose one of the salt solutions to make apple mummy heads. Students carve apple heads and pack them in salt mixtures and leave them there for a week. After a week, students remove their mummies and see they have changed.

Both activities take 4 - 5 days to complete, but most of this is inactive time - waiting for the mummification process to take place.
