Prepare A Mummy For Burial

| 0 comments

The Oriental Insitute of the University of Chicago has a  nice interactive  animation with visuals and simple text on Preparing a Mummy For Burial in ancient Egypt.  Students get to do the preparation, including sticking a metal hook up the animated corpse’s body to break his brain into little pieces.  I don’t know about your students, but mine will love doing it (it sounds more gross than it looks when it’s done in a cartoon animation)!

Students can click on various words to hear and see their definition, too.

You can find the link to this site on my World History page near the bottom of The First Civilized People section.
