Apple Mummification

Apple Mummification 
Mr. Koretz's class recently completed an apple mummification project while studying the Ancient Egyptians. Students carved apples using straws to represent Ancient Egyptian tools used to remove organs. They then salted the apple and wrapped it using toilet paper and placed them in a happy meal box which represented the Ancient Egyptian's tomb. The students will revisit their apples in 40 days to see if they were properly dried out much like the Ancient Egyptians did.
