On our labor day road trip, we listened to this missionary story on audio book.  It’s one of our favorites – the story of Lilian Trasher (as a part of the Christian Heroes Then & Now Series).  The subtitle is The Greatest Wonder in Egypt.

So, as we are studying ancient Egypt and the geography of that part of the world, we enjoyed a more modern story (set in the early 1900s) of what God has done in Eygpt.

Resources for studying ancient Egypt

Draw & Write through History, Volume 1
This book has several pictures relating to Egypt, including mummies, the Sphinx, pyramids, Moses crossing the Red Sea, and various pictures to represent the plagues on Egypt.  The mummy and Sphinx pictures relate nicely to Week 2 Fine Arts, mirror image lesson and the pyramid goes well with the Fine Arts perspective lesson.  This book is also includes cursive paragraphs that go with the lessons and they are written from a Christian perspective.

Ancient Egypt covers a thousand years.  Here are a few resources we are using:

  • the biblical account in Exodus
  • The Prince of Eygpt
  • a few short stories from The Story of the World
  • Mummies in the Morning: a Magic Tree House book (and companion book)


Activity Ideas:

  • Memorize the 10 Commandments, write them out on “stone tablets”
  • Look at hieroglyphics, practice writing in pictures
  • Look at maps of Egypt and the path of the Exodus
  • Draw pictures of ancient Egypt using the drawing book
  • Draw pictures from the biblical account, such as the plagues
  • make a pyramid or mummy
  • watch programs that relate to the pyramids, such as Mr. Peabody and Sherman
