    As I sit here lesson planning in China, an idea, and a rather fun one is coming to me. In order for children to understand mummification a little more you may want to let the give each other foot baths with epsom salt, after soaking their feet ( in resin and natron …. hahahaha) they can wrap the feet in strips of linen, paper, paper towels, ace bandages, etc. If you wish to cross disciplines you can have them count backwards from 70 indicating the average number of days in the mummification process.
    Upon completion pass out chocolate hearts to everyone and they will learn about the heart, too. Take the chocolate hearts out of CANOPIC JARS.
