As we reviewed why the Ancient Egyptians adopted mummification rituals. We practiced the mummification process by making an apple mummy. God also used this experiment to teach a very valuable lesson on obedience (but that's another story...) :-)

Kids favorite: The making of the yummiest DNA...
We were disappointed at first when we found our Twizzlers cut in half so the outcome was not as I expected but the kids still had a blast - especially in the 'eating part' of the activity. It felt like the 'Marshmallow Test' as Riel and Aethan tried to resist the urge to eat their favorite gummies. I told them to wait until we have made a model of theDNA. As they were threading the bears onto the toothpick, I would see them smelling the gummies, resisting the temptation to eat. After our lesson, what a relief it was for them to finally enjoy their DNA.
My personal favorite is this cell community that my kids made.
|here, Lysosomes are represented as policemen|
|Mitochondira as the power source in the community|
|The Golgi bodies as grocery stores|
|The Centrioles as "moms" who are clone makers|
|The Nucleus as the government|
Praise God for homeschooling!
