Ancient Egypt Drawing Book

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!
