New topic!

This week in year 5 we began our journey into the history of medicine, first stop was Ancient Egypt!

Archaeologists for the day

We became archaeologists for the day and excavated tombs. The children were looking at artefacts. They studied photos of the gods and famous physicians. They looked at the process of mummification and even mummified their own Pharaoh (apple). In the afternoon, the children were whisked off to Ancient Greece. They studied Aristotle and Hippokrates and their contribution to medicine. The children used their presentation skills to create informative posters and powerpoints.
