Our unit on every day life in Ancient Egypt though short was a lot of fun. I read aloud from:
Boy of the Pyramids, and Our Little Egyptian Cousin while they colored the following every day images and wrote about some of the everday events on the handwriting papers.
The every day things make a nice colorful pocket.
For this unit I ordered Ellen McHenry's Mapping the World with Art curriculum instead of doing a map drill. The map drawing curriculum includes maps for the whole globe and done in such a simple straight forward way the boys used only a pencil and eraser and a pen to make these wonderful maps of egypt.
The boys also made these colorful costumes and dressed up as egyptians.
Max the greatest!
