Walk like an Egyptian

In Apologia Anatomy we started by studying the history of the study of anatomy. That makes sense right? Well what study of the history of the study of human anatomy would be complete without mummifying something?!?!

We peeled two apples and set one aside for a control (cause we are good little scientists) and the other was covered in baking soda and salt for a week.

Corwin was not interested in touching, squeezing, smelling or doing anything else to apples that looked funky. Instead he concentrated on his 80's Bangles dance moves.

Faith is always ready for gross.

Just for the sake of passing on the know, the apple on the right is the mummified apple. The sodium bicarbonate and salt sucked out all the juice preventing bacterial growth (or something like that)

"They do the sand dance, don'cha know?"
