Ancient Egypt Learning Materials for Kids

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

This holy week, Mavi decided to revisit ancient Egypt after rereading the story of Ten Commandments.  We dug up our Egypt Picture Book materials so he can work on some readings and do some activities to go along with it.  In this post, I will share the contents of our Egypt Picture Book learning pack which you might want to try.  It contains: reading materials, activity pages, picture cards and outline cards for coloring.

THE READING MATERIAL

This is how it looked like on the inside.  A big illustration of some important concepts about ancient Egypt and a brief description.  For older kids, this is an independent reading material.  The descriptions are about 4-5 sentences and are easy to read.

THE ACTIVITY PAGES

This is an outline version of the reading material.  The main objective here is for the child to recreate his own booklet, using his own words on what he understands after reading the reading material.    Mavi loves coloring the pages in this book.

THE LEARNING CARDS

So aside from the reading materials and activity pages, I also included learning cards mainly for non readers.  We own Safari Toob Ancient Egypt so Vito used the cards in a matching activity.  Note that, this activity was supposedly for Mavi but since Vito insisted to join along,  I also prepared some activities for him, suited for his age.

An outline version of the cards are included for young children to color and form as a mini booklet.  Vito used this coloring cards when he saw Mavi working on the activity pages.

Mavi worked on his activity pages (booklet) the entire time while Vito worked on some hands-on like wrapping dolls to create a mummy.

Ancient Egypt gave birth to parchments, paper and weaving, so we practiced how to weave!

And for the final note, Mavi once again explored our Maps book.  We love this book, and we used it all the time whenever we try to learn about certain countries.  This perfectly compliments our Picture Book!
