Next term we are teaching Egyptians to Year 3 and 4. We always start our topics off with something 'different' - teachers and TAs dress up, we mix classes and rotate activities to make it memorable and start the topic off with a bang. This time around, I am focusing on mummification as my activity and want to make it exciting, as well as meeting the teaching objectives. I tried to think of how to make it exciting and thought of using animal organs as props (rather than just looking at pictures on paper/internet etc). I am in two minds. Firstly, as a child I would have loved this, I could also easily get hold of livers/kidneys from my butcher and most children in my school would have seen these before. On the other hand I don't know if this crosses a line into being somewhat mordib and disturbing. As it plays out in my head, the children would not be touching the organs as I would be demonstrating and this would lead into some instruction writing. Your opinions would be greatly appreciated though. As a kid I would have loved it, my wife instantly disliked the idea. Is it a bit too far?
