This FUN project will take you and your students step-by-step through the process of actually mummifying a hot dog! Integrate science as you weigh, measure and take pre-mummification measurements of the hot dog. Mimic the embalming process as you remove the internal organs of the hotdog and preserve them in canopic jars. Dehydrate the hotdog in natron and learn the science behind why dehydration preserves flesh. Students make connections to the actual process that the Egyptians went through when preserving their dead. After dehydration is complete, take post measurements and observations, wrap your hotdog in linen bandages. Read from the book of the dead and send your wiener into the wondrous afterlife. You'll REALLY feel like a wiener with this project. As usual, thanks for Using Your Smarticles.
