Ever wonder how biblical history and ancient Egyptian history fit together? Why was God so angry with Pharaoh, anyway? These were questions we asked when we began our study of Ancient Egypt. We wanted to start our study of Western history by beginning at the beginning. After reading through the Old Testament (which is history, after all) we study ancient Egypt. The Greenleaf Guide to Ancient Egypt presents ten lesson plans, using the six books listed below. Included are vocabulary lists and discussion questions drawn from the reading. Also included are directions for playing a checkerslike game found in Tut's tomb, directions for building a model shaduf (irrigate like the Egyptians ), as well as suggestions for how to adapt your study to fit grades 2-7. Home school tested. Excellent for Konos or Unit studies. Average duration is about 15 weeks.
