Year 3 Humanities

This week in Humanities, Year 3 have been exploring the ever-fascinating subject of mummification. The boys discovered the meaning behind the process and why the Egyptians preferred this method of burial. They then discovered the step-by-step process of the mummification itself. The boys were particularly interested in the treatment of the organs and why some were treated in a special manner and why others were not (such as the brain).

The boys then had to organise all the steps into the correct order. They are now using this knowledge to create a comic strip explaining the correct way to prepare a pharaoh for the afterlife. Super work.
