7F history students were wrapped up in an ancient process, a process we know as mummification. As part of our study of ancient societies, year 7 are learning about ancient Egyptian burial customs.

Through this role-play activity, students in groups of three had different roles to enact. One student was the Chief priest performing the tasks, another student also acted as a priest who read the meticulous instructions required in mummification and the last student had to lie extremely still.

The students learnt the step-by-step process involved in mummification as well as its religious significance in ancient Egyptian society. It provided them a hands on way of learning the steps involved in this ancient procedure, in a way I’m sure they’ll never forget.
