I am a homeschooler, and I am a creative, so I have to mix things up a bit. Sometimes we will stick strictly “to the books,” other times we will have fun auto-didacting, still others we will go on an adventure and learn everything we can about a particular subject. Since I love to share what we do in the hopes of encouraging others, in this post I will be presenting the ancient Egypt unit study guide I created to use with our children for free download.
I included a list of resources, activities, vocabulary, and research subjects. I gathered all of this by perusing various history books, the Bible, Answers in Genesis and Heritage-History.com.
Personally, I find that the culture of Ancient Egypt was dark, focused on a cult of death, so I wasn’t looking forward to doing it with our children. But then God reminded me that Egypt is mentioned over and over in the Bible, and instantly I became excited. This was especially true when considering we could concentrate on the character of Joseph and his ordeal.
Remember, unit studies can be as fancy or simple as you want them to be, but they should never be overwhelming! If you have tried unit studies and been disappointed, or just can’t figure out quite how to do them, here is a post that can help.

I really love putting these guides together, and I hope to put out more in the future. Let me know in the comments if there are any areas you would like to see me cover.
