Veritas History Class - mummies part I

We are studying MUMMIES! There are so many great books with excellent pictures and descriptions of mummification. Our class is going to try the process on our little game hens.

These were taken several weeks ago.... the kids each have a small hen to liberally salt and season in a large ziplock bag.

They took their hens in a bag home and were told to freeze and salt them (each week) and bring them back about 6 weeks later.

Well, today is six weeks later. Today in class we get to do the fun part - wrapping and stuffing the little guys with linen. Then, we will put them in our decorated, gold and glittery coffins.
