Mummification of a Tomato

Last week, we were learning about Ancient Egyptian beliefs in the After Life.  We explored the steps taken to mummify and preserve the body to ensure it can be reunited with the soul of the deceased person, once the world had ended.  In order to fully understand each detail of the process, we decided to try to mummify a fruit - a tomato in fact!

The children really enjoyed learning through the experiment. We have worked scientifically to ensure the test is fair, made predictions and observations and look forward to checking in on the mummified tomatoes in approximately 3 weeks time.  Watch this space for the results!
