Mummification Lessons

Year Five are learning about the Egyptians this half term and as part of their Big Bang day mummified a tomato. First, we cut the top off and scooped out the "organs". We washed them well in the sacred waters of the Nile (just tap water:-) After that, we stuffed the tomato with natron (a mixture of salt and bicarbonate of soda) Finally, we put the tomatoes in more salt for the tomato to dry up. Watch this spot for the results.
