P4 Canopic Pics

P4 have been learning about Ancient Egypt, they requested to carry out the mummification process – we used apples instead!

As part of this process the Ancient Egyptians put the lungs, intestines, stomach and liver in canopic jars.

The pupils asked to make their own jars, for this we used clay.  In the lesson the pupils learnt about how and why the Ancient Egyptians used the canopic jars as well as how to work with clay. Next, the pupils will design their lids for the jars choosing from a baboon, human, jackal or falcon.
