This school-year we have been focusing on world history from creation through the fall of Rome, using Classical Conversations Cycle 1. Included in these studies were, of course, the ever-interesting ancient Egyptian civilizations. Continuing with my theme of random topics this month, I have been wanting to share a couple of our favorite resources for studying Egypt. In addition to several great books, the kids enjoyed playing with the Egypt Toob from Safari toys:
as well as this great drawing book by Ralph Masiello:
The children all made dozens of sketches from this book and labeled them. Highly recommended!
