Mummies Almost Mummified!!

Hi everyone!  Our mummies are almost finished!!  We've been spending time re-seasoning until the stench finally disappeared!  Then, each group wrapped their chicken mummy in gauze and used a glue/water mixture to serve as a resin substance.  The students then captured the essence of ancient times when riches were buried with the bodies by adorning the mummies with gems and jewels.  Next, they decorated the 'sarcophagus ' (two paper bowls that will be stapled together) that will host their mummies for an eternity of lifetime. Currently, we are waiting for the mummies to totally dry before ceremonial burials!! More to come.....
