Mummies Take over History Classroom
Rich South students in Mr. DeBenedetti 's history class focused on Egyptian mummification as part of their study of Ancient Civilizations. The students went step by step in the embalming and mummification process that took place in ancient Egypt. They even created the canopic jars which held the vital organs in burial. Volunteers for the embalming process came from students in the class and also Mr. DeBenedetti.
