Mrs. Liastro’s eighth grade world history classes mummified students to understand the mummification process better. Mummification is a process in which the skin and flesh of a corpse can be preserved.

In ancient Egypt pharaohs were mummified when they died. “We talked about Egypt and mummification and wanted to bring it to life for my students,” Mrs. Liastro said, “I know my students like hands on activities, and I wanted to do something.” Eighth grader, Chloe Monsanto, commented, “My favorite part of the project was having the opportunity to impersonate what an Egyptian would have gone through.”

Eighth grader, Allyson Montesdeoca, commented, “The difficult part of the project was trying not to break the toilet paper to mummify the person.” Monsanto said the difficult part was getting “hampered” by “communicative” friends.

Mrs. Liastro says her students had a lot of fun, laughed a lot and took ton of pictures of themselves as mummies.

“The whole concept of the project was just to learn about Egyptian mummification and its importance in reaching the afterlife,” explained Mrs. Liastro.

This is an important lesson because if students didn’t learn about the topic they wouldn’t know anything about ancient times.
