The Trinitas Classical Christian School curriculum includes studying ancient Egypt in the second grade. In the process of learning about Egyptian times and rituals, Mrs. Robson’s class is creating mummies. What better way to appreciate and understand the process of mummifying than to mummify a chicken? Her students completely agreed and enjoyed the process of mixing the baking powder, salt, and baking soda to prepare the hens for the 40 day waiting (or mummifying) process. Once the preservation project is complete, the students will wrap the hens with glue and gauze, creating the long awaited chicken mummy!
