Hi guys! This post is going to be about Social Studies, and it's going to be very cool. Wondering what it is? Well, read the title! We mummified fruits in Social Studies. And this is about Ancient Egypt! Here comes the progress...
First, we had to get a plastic bag which we used instead of a coffin. And when the priests make the mummies, they put salt and other things in it. For us, we put baking soda and salt in it. We mixed those two for a bit and then we started officially! Instead of a 'dead person', we obviously used fruits like in the title.
After we got the fruits, we got a spoon and started taking the inside out, just like the priests taking about the organs... I took out the insides of tomatoes and apples! When we were done with that, we needed to wrap them into tissues. Actually, we didn't have to, we could leave some without tissues, too. So I put some tomatoes into tissues and some just by itself. Well, that was the final step! All we needed to do was wait for the fruits to 'decade'...
One week passed, and we checked on our mummified fruits. It was pretty cool, even though it did really smell a bit rotten. 🙂 We took out the fruits out of the bag and laid it out on the tissue
Cool, right? (The white things inside the tomatoes are baking soda and salt, just the things I described up there.)
This time, I'm going to talk about my three most favorite projects/activities that we did in Social Studies. So the first one is the timeline! This was the very first project we did. While we were working on the timeline, it reminded me about my 'Me College'. Me Collage is a project I did in Unit Studies(basically the same thing as Social Studies) in grade 4. The only difference was that the events were recorded by the time order, the chronological order. It was also fun writing about my past.
The second one is the 'Minecraft Project'!! I bet that almost everyone in grade 6 is going to choose this one as one of their favorites because it's just like the title. We actually used Minecraft to do the project! By now, you would be wondering what in the world this project is. We were learning about the topography, vegetation, and the most important thing, water in Ancient Egypt, Cush, and Kanaan. (Just in case, all of this information is inside my blog and the title is 'Ancient Eygpt in Minecraft!' So read that blog post to figure why I liked this project so much... 🙂 )
The last but not the least, mummifying fruits. You know what I mean, because the reason I liked doing this is up there. With this, it's the end of this long blog post! I hope you enjoyed it. 🙂
