This lesson plan gives a step by step process on how to mummify a chicken. It is a great way to teach students about the Egyptians process of mummification. The students work in groups to add the ingredients needed to mummify the chicken. The entire mummification process takes up to 45 days, but the project is something that students will never forget. Students will learnt the customs of the Egyptians while also being able to observe and take data on the differences in the chicken at different parts of the 45 day process. This is a great way to get students interested in Egyptian culture.
