Then, we found out about the Weighing of the Heart Ceremony, which the Ancient Egyptians believed was the final test to see whether a person's spirit would reach the afterlife. We made some fantastic cartoon strips to explain what the Ancient Egyptians believed happened during the ceremony.
Can you remember which gods were involved in the ceremony?
Keep an eye on the blog- there will be some pictures of your instructions for mummification and your cartoon strips about the Weighing of the Heart Ceremony soon!
This week, we will be learning more about the afterlife- and starting a "mummification" project of our own! On Thursday we will be visiting the Horniman Museum to see some real Ancient Egyptian items- it will be a very exciting experience! Make sure you have returned your permission slip!
