In groups of 4, students from classes 7HA, 7HC and 7HH, presented and performed the mummification process in front of their peers. Each group had 1 narrator who explained the steps of mummification, 2 embalmers who performed the process and a body of a ‘deceased’ person. Each group needed to organise and bring: ‘internal organs’, Canopic jars, a hook, and scrolls from the Book of the Dead.
