FREE Ancient Egypt Unit Study Guide

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

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.

To explain further, here is a video you may enjoy:

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.

  1. We are studying ancient history this year & I recommend this free Kindle book – “A Cry Out of Egypt”. Story of Moses from a young Hebrew girl’s perspective

  2. I am so thankful for this. Yes, I would love more of these for the world history arena! We have used Mystery of History before, but I really want to use living books instead! However, I am not well versed enough to be able to know good resources that line up with our values. I trust your thoughts on these things. So thank you so much for all the time and energy you put in to all you do!

  3. Hi Sherry,
    I just wanted to comment and let you know how thankful I am for you! You have helped me to grow in my faith and walk with Jesus Christ and have hugely impacted my confidence in homeschooling my children. I look forward to your blogs and posts but haven’t seen anything from you in awhile through email or elsewhere. I hope and pray that you and your family are well.
    Blessings in Christ

    • Thank you, Rachel. I am alive and well, just mostly on YouTube of late, sorry to not have responded earlier! My husband keeps telling me I need to do a post or two on here–I suppose I should listen to him 🙂

  4. An amazing resource for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt! This free unit study guide offers a comprehensive and engaging exploration of this fascinating civilization

  5. Hola querida Sherry muchas gracias por compartir, te quiero preguntar tu opinión acerca de la mitología, personalmente no me gusta leerle mitología a los niños, pero al estudiar antiguo Egipto y antigua Roma se encuentra mucha mitología, es necesario? O cómo recomiendas abordar ese tema? Gracias Sherry un abrazo desde Bogotá, disculpa por escribirte en español

    • No hay problema. A mí tampoco me gusta la mitología, pero es necesario que nuestros hijos la conozcan. El enlace que te sugerí de Answers in Genesis incluye un esquema de los mitos con un punto de vista cristiano pero sin profundizar demasiado. ¡Espero que te sirva de ayuda!

      • Gracias, lo revisaré, y con respecto a leer libros como por ejemplo la odisea y la Ilíada, qué piensas? No me siento segura de incluirlos o no.

        • Entiendo. Para mí, hay muchas otras cosas que preferiría leer, y tan poco tiempo con mis hijos, que leeremos un resumen o veremos una película para que estén familiarizados con la historia y luego seguiremos adelante.

    • It went quite well, actually. I am not sure if I can get to sharing, perhaps I could share on the YouTube community.
