Egyptian Pyramids – Places of Old #4
I found a whole pile of FREE ‘goodies’ to go with Egyptian Pyramids today. The Dewey library number/reference for this book by Kate Riggs is JR932 RIG.
The ‘Places of Old’ books by Kate Riggs are easy to read, encourage curiosity and have full colored photos on every page. Although Caleb did not do the harder worksheet that I am sharing with you, he was old enough (4) to listen to the book. You can purchase these books from Amazon but because they are only available in hardback they are quite expensive so I recommend getting them from your library. If you are not able to find this particular book grab a different one!
Education.com has some FREE worksheets on Egyptian Pyramids here. More individual pages, in no particular order from Education.com:
- Egypt Coloring Page
- How to Draw a Pyramid (suggested for Second Grade)
- Ancient World Pyramid (Fourth Grade vocabulary)
Activity Village has LOADS of links if you really want to get into Egypt!
If you have an atlas, get it out and let the children find Egypt. As part of our study we also read from the Bible in Genesis 41 about Joseph in Egypt interpreting Pharaoh’s dreams. The kids have heard this story many times before but it was a good opportunity to refresh their memories. We also discussed Moses crossing the Red Sea and Mary, Joseph and Jesus fleeing to Egypt to escape the massacre ordered by Herod.
