Shiloh Students Complete Next Step in Egyptian Project


You may remember sixth graders at Shiloh Christian School beginning the mummification process of 11 chickens.

Now as the chickens stay cooped up in their plastic bags, the students begin the next step.

They're doing just as the Egyptians did - making a sarcophagus, a death mask, and canopic jars for the chicken.

The jars were to hold and preserve the internal organs.

The students won't actually be putting anything in them but the jars will be with the sarcophagus.

Each group member takes on one of these three projects for their King Cluck.

"She likes doing the drawing and the painting stuff so she got to do the box. She likes to do the sculpting kind of stuff so she got to do the canopic jar and then I like doing masks."

"I draw a lot of different things."

"It looks easier than it actually is."

Once the clay hardens, the next step will be to paint and decorate the masks with glitter.

The entire mummification process will take six weeks.
