Mummification goes digital

Don’t all units on Ancient Egypt at least mention the pyramids and mummies? This Egyptsite will fit right in. The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago has a great simulation site that explores the process the ancient Egyptians used to mummify a person. With the opportunity to click on new vocabulary words, the simulation takes visitors through the seven step process of mummification.

The Oriental Institute also has a great Teacher Resource Center with lesson plans and information geared toward the middle and high school levels.
