Where's My Mummy: Preservation Techniques

To observe preservation techniques firsthand, learners dry a flower in sand and compare cucumber slices soaked in salt water for a week with slices left out to dry in the open air. Video resources (not attached) include one about mummies from Reading Rainbow and are enhanced by scripted viewing discussion guidance. Finally, they make a mock-ancient Egyptian cartouche from plaster.

I subscribed to Lesson Planet after I started teaching science at my district's alternative school. Science isn't my specialty so it has been a real life saver! I am able to find lots resources to enrich my lessons! It's a tremendous time saver too! Why reinvent the wheel?
