Mummification by the 6th Grade Class

October 16, 2015

The 6th graders learned about the Ancient Egypt and the process of “mummification”. As a group, they “mummified” a chicken that became the class’ Egyptian king. They learned what the Egyptians thought happened their afterlife It was very important that the body and the appearance of the kind didn’t change so it was preserved with salt. The “ka” (a spirit or life force that stayed with them throughout the course of their lives) needed the body to look the same so the “ka” could recognize it. After the body was preserved, the class dug a burial site for the king and it was laid to rest. The chicken was donated to the class by Lois Vitek .
