Books and Resources for Learning about Ancient Egypt (and an Awesome Freebie!)

My younger girls and I cycled back to the ancients in our history this year. We've spent quite a long time in Ancient Egypt lately. Learning about Ancient Egypt can be a pretty awesome thing, though. After all pyramids and mummies make for some interesting reading.

Our curriculum uses a variety of resources to teach history instead of a textbook. I love that. I think we learn much more through great living books than we would from a dry and dusty textbook. I've added lots of my own resources to our Ancient Egypt study as well, and I'm sharing books, websites, and activities here. If you're ready to dive into mummies, pyramids, and life along the Nile River, these links will get you started.
