Yes, my kids are just a little beyond the activities described in this post. We actually will be studying ancient history this year, but at a high school level. However, I know that many of my readers have younger children, so this is for all of those families! (This is a post from Educents and does contain affiliate links.)
Fun facts about Ancient Egypt:
- The Egyptian alphabet contained more than 700 hieroglyphs!
- Egyptians believed cats were a sacred animal and having a pet cat would bring a household good luck.
- Ancient Egyptians invented pens, toothpaste, and a game very similar to bowling.
