This post includes all of the work we have done on Ancient Egypt.  I will be starting a new unit with my little ones next year, so this will be added to.   The children were aged about 7 when we studied Egypt.

  1. So I pinned this and thought, “Brilliant, why didn’t I think to make a sarcophagus when we studied Egypt?” And then promptly closed the window having in my mind made the comment. I need to get a pot of tea going.

  2. Oh, my goodness they are cute dressed up! You were smart enough to take pictures. I don’t have pictures of the stuff we did in the pre-blogging days.

    1. I wish I’d taken more. It is the best thing about blogging – having to record everything makes you more reliable about taking photos of everything.

  3. Thank you for grouping all your posts together. I am getting to see some of your old posts which I’d have missed otherwise.

  4. L is studying ancient Egypt in school – and its nowhere near as interesting as your studies! I’m still awed at the fact that you mummified a chicken!
