Guided Practice: 

  1. Go through Powerpoint about mummies, with the students.
  2. Give each student a description or picture of one step of the mummification process and have them work as a class to match up each description with the picture and then put them all in the right order. 
  3. Have students play “Make a Mummy” game on the smartboard, while they are decorating their sarcophaguses (Independent Practice).

 

 

 

 

Checking for Understanding: 

 I will question the students to make sure that they understand.
