One reason I chose to use Ancient Egypt Passport Project from Home School in the Woods is because of the amount of hands-on history that it has.
Today, I am sharing Ancient Egypt Unit Study Part 2 because I want to be sure you to get see wayyy more pictures before I finish this study.
I know I am not using it like suggested meaning you pick and choose what you like to do. That would be too balanced for me.
I tend to be over board when it comes to history and we like sampling a little bit of it all. Don’t do like me.
We are trying to squeeze in every bit of the activities because we can’t wait to make the next activity and also I am visually obsessed so I wanted to be sure you get tons of pictures for this unit study.
Today, we played with paper dolls.
Okay, don’t tell Tiny I said that because it was almost an outright mutiny when I showed him what we were going to do next.
Tiny was almost not going to do these fun Egyptian Figures, but it ended up being such a cool project I am glad we did them.
Homeschool History and Crafts Obsessed
Not only did we enjoy the coloring, but he enjoyed reading about what Egyptians, both adults and kids wore back then.The coolest part is that after using an exacto knife on the paper figures, the clothing can be changed out by sticking tabs from the pieces into the holes or slits cut on the figures.
After a bit of time, he really got into changing out the pieces.
One thing that is so unique was that there were templates to use to cut out actual fabric that can be glued onto the figures.
I thought how fun it would be if you had a girl but that was Tiny’s limit. He wasn’t going to make templates out of material.The finished looking project is a fun way to learn about time period clothing. He was pleased with his finished product.Not only is all the reading you need included with this unit study, which I like because you know the only books I can get here in Ecuador are in Spanish, but then the review of the material is illustrated in different ways like these pop out books.We read about the social system in Ancient Egypt.
Then Tiny glued the text on each mini pop out book to show each level in the social system.Let’s just face it, interacting with mini pop up books are certainly way more fun to handle and review material.
After he made the minibooks, I helped him glue them on the page showing he social pyramid.
Tell me which kid wouldn’t prefer to review material from a page like this instead of a worksheet?Then one more project I wanted to show you was the pocket made for souvenirs.The pages are instructions for dressing up like an Egyptian boy or girl.There are more projects we are working on as we make our way through this hands-on unit study.
Have you ever tried any of the history unit studies from Home School in the Woods? Do you have any favorites?
