Camden Middle School students McKinley Dixon, Eliza Edwards and Hailey Eberts mummifying their chicken legs. After massing the chicken legs and adding baking soda and salt for preservation, students mixed in spices to help with the chicken’s odor.

Sixth grade students at Camden Middle School (CMS) recently celebrated Mummy Day, a culmination of a unit of study on Ancient Egypt. During the school day, students traveled to four stations where they participated in cross curriculum activities. Students created life-size sarcophagi, found the surface area of pyramids that they then constructed, participated in a virtual pharaoh’s mummification process, and then mummified chicken legs.
