Katey got this really neat Archaeology Set. She had to decipher a code to unlock the pyramid and then excavate 5 artifacts from the pyramid. This kit came with all the tools she needed.
The booklet also taught us much about Egypt and how to mummify an apple.
We cut an apple in half and placed half of it in a glass jar.
We took 1/2 cup salt and mixed it with 1/2 cup baking soda and covered the apple.
We waited and waited and waited. A whole week we waited.
Then we took the apple out and ewe….
It was mummified!
We learned that the salt and baking soda mixture took out all the moisture from the apple.
