Story of the World Ch 4

The Old Kingdom of Egypt (3000-2100BC)

I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks of great pyramids and mummies when I think of Ancient Egypt.  My kids love the units on Egypt.  I love the way Story of the World puts history into a fun format and easy to understand reading, but I feel that I need to supplement each chapter with more information.  I have found several videos on pyramids, but found it a little harder  to find videos on mummies that I wanted to show to my children, as some pictures of mummies aren't the prettiest.  If you know of any great mummy videos, please send them my way.  

Please view all videos before showing them to your children to determine if they meet your standards.

There are several activities you can do with this chapter:

Make your own mummy and mummy case

Check out this great lapbook that folds up into a pyramid

Play Mummy Maker and learn about how mummies were made

I read it in the book of the dead - website to learn about mummies
