Unit Study: Let’s Study Ancient Egypt Pt. 1
by Belinda Mooney
The 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.
