Worksheet based on YouTube clip of lecture given by Bob Brier about mummification he did in the 1900s. THIS IS RALLY ONLY SUITABLE FOR SENIOR CLASSES. It involves the ethics of doing a mummification in modern times.
As part of our topic on Ancient Egypt, we 'mummified' some tomatoes (a dead body was hard to get hold of at such short notice!).\nHaving found this idea on a website, I made this PowerPoint to guide the children (year 4) through the task; it's quite messy but lots of fun!
Goes from the dinosaurs through key periods of history to the present day. Use MS Word to adapt it.

Just finished this assembly with my Y5 class, it went so well and they loved it.
It involves an 'X factor' style show where each Greek god auditions to be king of the gods, whilst telling the audience a little bit about the Ancient Greeks.
It involves throwing confetti at the audience, a dance routine to music from Disney's Hercules, and a boy dressing up as Cheryl Cole....if you want.
Adapt and use as you want. Enjoy.
