Fun with History Project Ideas for Ancient Egypt

Hands on Project Ideas when studying Ancient Egypt

Heard about the Old and New Kingdom of Egypt and the Pharoah's crown combining the kingdoms?  It's time to make it.  You only need cardboard and some imagination.

This is the time that you explore, allow your house to be a messy place filled with cardboard bits, paper, pencils, tape, paint, glue and anything needed to allow the hands-on history project ideas to happen;

Our kids loved getting squashing the grapes when making 'wine' and preparing an Israelite Feast; 

 Time to get into the fun and live out the culture that you've been reading about through a spine book or through one of the exciting read aloud living books.

972026: History Through the Ages CD-Rom Set Creation to Present History Through the Ages CD-Rom Set Creation to Present
By Homeschool In The Woods

Timelines are a wonderful way to see all history at a glance! They help visualize the procession of time and how one event spurts on another. They also help you see history by the slice - what was happening at various places in the world at the same time. Timelines help the most visual of learner grasp the abstract idea of "time" in a hands-on way.

Your kinesthetic learner will benefit from the cutting and coloring of figures. They are wonderful for the auditory learner as each figure has a descriptive text to remember key points of each person or event. Best of all, they inspire a love of learning about the people and events that made a mark in the world, reinforcing that knowledge by taking part in putting the "puzzle" of history together.

CD 1 includes PDF pages of all the figures in the History Through the Ages Timelines sets:

  • Creation to Christ
  • Resurrection to Revolution
  • Napoleon to Now
  • America's History
CD 2 includes:
  • For advanced projects, a gallery of GIFS of more than 1,260 timeline images
  • Over 30 helpful categories, stored in web browser format: chronological, alphabetical, and several classifications that help make topical studies a breeze!
Windows® and Macintosh® Compatible. Acrobat® Reader Required.
Although I haven't used these time-line figures, I can see how they can easily be used in any history approach. However, you may even decide to make your own!
