Where is your Mummy?

Supporting 6th grade World History Standards and Visual Arts skill building/design themes this 3 session mummy projects was both creative and educational (and lots of fun). Starting with a brief discussion of ancient Egyptian life and art supported with hand outs, prints and books students made sketches of their
royal tomb.

To create the coffin students had the option of using preprinted guides or drawing their own. This project used crayons, color pencils, beads, tissue paper and othe small decorative collage elements. Once the drawing was completed and cut out it was mounted on folded black paper (card like) and inside they drew-with white color pencil a mummy and or skeleton (once again with visual support materials)
