Today Y4 used the ancient Egyptian art of mummification.  Don’t worry we didn’t use it on a child!!  We wanted to see what would happen to an apple if we mummified it.  This is what our apple looked like to begin with.


We mixed salt and bicarbonate of soda together and packed our apple into it.


This is what it looks like now:


Can you predict what will have happened to the apple when we take it out of the salt after a week?
