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
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)
- 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
