Some of our favorite books for Egypt units:

Online resources:

We like these science connections:

  • Simple machines, to hook up with the building of the pyramids. The Franklin Institute has PDF resources.
  • Animal studies of favorite Egyptian animals like crocodiles, hippos, scarab beetles, and cats
  • Archaeology. We like simulated digs, in particular. The link gives ideas for digs from cake to full-scale schoolyard digs. Archaeology for Kids: Uncovering the Mysteries of Our Past gives lots of detail and step-bystep ideas for 25 hands-on experiences.
  • Mummies give a surprising number of opportunities for hands-on experimentation.
  • Agriculture. Fishing may really have been more important to many Egyptians, but Ancient Egypt is certainly one of the important way stations for a study of agriculture.
