If you are looking for a guided reading packet to accompany your study of the Magic Tree House: Mummies in the Morning, this resource just may be perfect for differentiated homework or small group instruction activities.
Included in this resource:
*Comprehension questions from each chapter of the book
*Non-Fiction close read pages on ancient Egyptian civilization where your students practice citing the evidence
---> This also includes my "How to Write a Mummy" hands on science project.
This is probably hands-down one of my FAVORITE lessons. At first it began by simply being a "how to" writing project for my kiddos. It then went into a hands-on science experiment where my kids were able to "experience" what it is like to prepare a body for burial like the ancient Egyptians.
This activity has been tested and tweaked several times. I have had so much success with it, I have used it for my formal observation. I have had our district PR rep come and take pictures to use on our district website. This activity is student run with very little assistance needed by you the teacher.
Included are several graphic organizers, writing pages, and rubric. I have included pocket chart strips for each step. I have included a step by step set up for the night and day before the experiment. I have included a link to my blog where I show how I ran the experiment with pictures for each step.
Seriously, this is SO easy and SO much fun! The only thing that is "seasonal" for this activity is a pumpkin. I am sure you could be creative and use something else but this is what worked for me!!
