Ancient Egyptians removed a mummy’s organs and preserved them in canopic jars like these:

Step 7. Remove chicken’s organs, wrap individually, and place inside jars.
Then, after the interesting demonstration, when the children are at P.E., promptly remove the organs from the jars and throw them in the trashcan, because you don’t want your classroom to stink.
In case you have been ceaselessly wondering how to mummify a chicken (I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before it explodes all over Pinterest), I found the instructions from The Story of the World accompanying Activity Book (my favorite history curriculum).
Epaphras, our much loved co-worker, was the one who brought you the Good News. He is Christ’s faithful servant, and he is helping us… – Colossians 1:7
Epaphras. Not a name that rings a bell for me. I’ve read Colossians before, but I must have read over his name quickly and forgotten about him. That happens all the time for me.
Too bad I never gave much thought to him before, because he sounded like a great guy, a “much loved co-worker” it says. A “faithful servant” who “helps.”
I imagine him to be a team-player, likable, and effective at his job.
Have I mentioned that I love the people I work with? It’s no secret here that our building needs some fixin up, but the PEOPLE, I must say, are fantastic. They are faithful servants. And very helpful. Warm, professional, gracious, competent, and smart.
