Kids are fascinated with Ancient Egypt. Our book club decided to read The Pharaoh’s Secret by Marissa Moss and explore Ancient Egypt  and as we lost ourselves in the pages, discovering an ancient world, we created an Ancient Egypt study unit full of engaging activities.

We had so much fun with our Ancient Egypt Study Unit, we want to share it with you.

  3. My 3 year old would LOVE to learn about Hieroglyphics. She is really into different languages right now, including sign language, so a “picture” language would be awesome to show her too!!
