"I love the resources, they're nicely linked to curriculum objectives and easy to pick up. Especially good for the
science-phobic amongst us as the ideas are all there."

Make an Egyptian mummy
This is an exciting investigation for years 3, 4, P4 and P5 that your pupils will never forget! The Egyptians were fascinated by the human body and were well known for preserving the bodies of important people by turning them into mummies. Anything that used to be alive can be mummified. Pupils will mummify a tomato by creating the conditions used in ancient Egypt and observe what happens over several weeks.
This pack includes:
A differentiated lesson plan
A PowerPoint presentation explaining how the Egyptians mummified a body

"A brilliant magazine which fills a real gap in the market. It’s fun, intelligent and very “do-able” for a wide range of ages and abilities."Carolyn Stroud
"The subscription was a Christmas pressie for my 9 year old - we both love the magazine and doing the experiments together. Great bonding and great opportunity to do practical science experiments! Amazing!!"Cesca Voo
"My 10 year old son and his friend spent 30 minutes reading this together, and forgot - actually forgot! - that I had permitted some gaming time for them this afternoon! Literally the first time that has ever happened. Thank you! "Flora
