Unit Study: Let's
Study Ancient Egypt Pt. 1
by Belinda Mooney
January 28, 2001
Ancient Egyptians were a fascinating people as were most ancient cultures.
But so much happened at that time and in that area! A good portion of the
Old testament takes place in or around Egypt. Egypt also plays a major
role in the life of many Bible people from Moses and Joseph to Jesus. So
let's start out by looking at Egypt and just where in the world it is and
then we will look at the people, the culture and all that other neat stuff!
Here are some activities to get you started. As alway have your notebook and timeline ready and use lots of maps.
Locate Egypt on your globe and mark it on your map.
Locate the Upper and lower Nile and any other major rivers or bodies of water and label these on your map.
Label Cairo and other major cities as well as mountain ranges and deserts.
Start a geography notebook. You will be adding terms and definitions as we study Egypt.
Make a salt dough map
Continue your unit study on Egypt:
