During the last part of Term 2 Year 7 students were learning about Ancient Egypt as part of HSIE.  On the last day of term we mummified apple people in a mix of salt and bicarb soda in cups, they stayed in the classroom for 3 weeks.  The salt and bicarb drew out all the moisture from the apple people, which shrunk them quite a lot.
