I've been thinking recently of using flash cards as a way of learning and helping children to remember the information being given.
The top two sheets explain the mummification process. Each step of the process has a missing word to fill in. They find the missing word by looking at the Clue Sheet which they then should be able to relate to one of the Flash Cards which will be laid out in front of them on a table.
For example -
On the first sheet it says " First the Pharaoh is laid on a table. Now we can get to work! First we remove his _ _ _ _ _ through his nostrils! Ewww!
It says See Clue 1, so now we look at the Clue Sheet which says 'we use this to think with.' The answer is Brain. The flash cards are there to make things easier. Effectively, the answers are there on the flash cards in visual form to help the child narrow down the answers. On the back it will have an explanation of the object, for example, the brain card says...
'The Egyptians didn't think the brain was important so they threw it away."
