Ancient Egypt PacketStudents will learn a lot about the 3,000-year history of Egypt… from the early dynasties through the Old, Middle and New Kingdoms of ancient Egypt.  Students will also have the opportunity to learn about Egyptian mythology, learning how stories of the gods and goddesses helped guide the ancient Egyptians both in life and in death!

Here’s a more in-depth look at what is included in the Ancient Egypt Packet:

Pages 4-9 Geography Activities: Notebook Pages, Famous Landmarks Cut and Paste Activity – It’s often good to start with what        you know, so I included some of the famous landmarks your students may be familiar with.  You might want to point out that there were more than 1,300 years between the pyramids and Ramses II’s Temples!

Egypt Geography and Landmarks WorksheetsPages 11-17 Ancient Egypt Booklet (Tracing): This booklet covers the Nile, ancient Egyptian jobs, the role of scribes, the Afterlife, mummification and more!

Pages 54-67 Egyptian Gods and Goddesses Materials

Egyptian mythology is really fascinating! Your kids will learn about the four siblings Osiris, Set, Isis and Nephthys… and how Set’s jealousy ultimately led to the beginning of mummification and a way for humans to attain the Afterlife! There are cards about each of the gods/goddesses, a (rough) family tree of the gods, a write-up of the Osiris-Isis myth plus student notebook pages. I also included a page that has larger pictures of each of the gods/goddesses if your student wants to do a poster project.

This was such a fun packet to research and put together!! I hope your family enjoys this unit!

As with many of our packets, the Ancient Egypt Packet was designed with the homeschool family in mind. It has some easier materials (like tracing pages for the Ancient Egypt Booklet) and cards that go along with the plastic ancient Egyptian figurines… but also includes history notebook pages that are more appropriate for older (upper elementary or middle school) students. The best age range is probably Grades 2-6 or so.

Our packets are all PDF digital downloads. If you need any help, feel free to drop me an email!

The Ancient Egypt Packet is 75+ pages.

  • I mentioned above that I made a few pages to go along with the Ancient Egypt TOOB. It can be purchased from Amazon.  If you have younger kids, you can bury the plastic figurines in the sand for them to dig out like an archaeologist!
  • I alsoMummies in the Morning - Magic Tree House included some comprehension questions (and answer pages) to go along with the Magic Tree House Book #3: Mummies in the Morning. I added those pages because all three of my kids loved that particular book (but read more than a dozen of the books in this series)! You can probably tell that because of the sad shape of the Mummies and Pyramids Nonfiction Bookfront cover of our book in the picture above! This author also wrote a non-fiction companion book called Mummies and Pyramids that is also perfect for 6-10 year olds.

Here are some other books that you might also want on hand.  Again, all of the answers are provided in the packet, so you do not have to have any of these specific books for our Ancient Egypt Unit.  Any resource books you have on hand or get from the library will work!

  • Story of the World vol. 1: story-of-the-world Ancient historyNone of the pages in this packet go specifically with this book, but my kids really loved this series when they were in elementary. It’s a great resource and is really accessible.
  • gods and goddesses of ancient egypt bookGods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt: Egyptian Mythology for Kids by Morgan E. Moroney. This books is available on Amazon Unlimited. The illustrations in this book are beautiful. It has a really easy to follow timeline. The myths are well written and it includes stories about Geb & Nut, Osiris, Isis, Set, Nephthys and others.
  • Egyptian MythsAnother mythology book we used was Egyptian Myths book (edited by Jacqueline Morley).
