Now let's check out some excellent Teacher homeschool history resources for the study of Ancient Egypt and Old Testatment. Here you will find resources which the parent/teacher will want to reference, use as a thread book as well as pass on to the older students as good reference materials.
Further on the page, you will find Historical Sources - places where the students can read the primary source material as they pursue a deeper understanding of early civilization, Biblical times and Ancient Egypt.
To begin with... for the young children a great way to bring the history study alive is to have this colouring in book. We used this when we read Bible Stories and our children coloured in, and then narrated it back to us into their own Bible Story Book. It is also made in such a way that you can paste them on to a timeline. Great to see the Biblical characters and themes in chronological order.
|The Big Picture & Bible Time Line
By Compiled by Carol Edie / Gospel Light
With the Big Picture Bible Time Line, you can bring the Bible to life for students of any age. Simple and bold, the visuals in this book are a perfect starting place for your Bible lessons, helping your students focus on the portions of Scripture youre teaching.
And when you put all the pieces of this Bible timeline together, you'll help your students get the big picture of the Bible. They'll see when Bible events happened in relation to each other and how those events all fit together into one story. Recommended for ages 6 to 12, grade s 1 to 6.
