Students Mummify Apples!

Today 7th graders studied the mummification process of Ancient Egypt by taking part in the process using an apple.  They started by washing and adding spices to the apple. Then they removed the brain (stem) and internal organs (seeds).  Then covered in salt to help the dehydrating process.  If interested in trying at home check out:  http://www.planet-science.com/categories/experiments/chemistry-chaos/2011/11/mummify-an-apple!.aspx
