APP for Primary Science - Mummification with Deborah Herridge

This Teachers TV programme shows CPD trainer Deborah Herridge introducing a practical mummification exercise for Key Stage One and Two which links science and history. Talking to a group of primary science teachers, Deborah shows how a tomato can be mummified using similar techniques to the method employed by ancient Egyptians, relating science to a history topic. The changes to the fruit can then be recorded over a few weeks, enabling teachers to cover the Assessing Pupil's Progress criteria for observing and measuring over time.
