History Curriculum - Ancient History

 

WORLD HISTORY - ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS

The following resources make an excellent core curriculum for the study of Egypt, Rome, and Greece. Add some activities and composition projects and you have a complete one year unit.

ANCIENT EGYPT

For Egypt activities, use History Pockets: Ancient Egypt. Kids learn about the daily life, government, religion, architecture, language, arts and recreation of Egypt by coloring, cutting, and pasting to create a pocket notebook. It includes maps, a time line, arts and crafts, and historical information. It's geared for grades 4-6 but could be used for all primary-age children with assistance from mom or siblings. Great for the Visual Learner and all kids who like to cut, paste, and color.

ANCIENT CHINA:

Ancient China, To the Great Wall and Beyond by Judy Wilcox.

ANCIENT GREECE

Ancient Greece by Christine Hatt.

For Greece activities, use History Pockets: Ancient Greece. Great for the Visual Learner and all kids who like to cut, paste, and color. ISBN 1557999031.

ANCIENT ROME:

Ancient Rome (Discovery Series) by Dr. Paul Roberts. Covers every aspect of Roman life and history; however there is very little information on Christians during this period. I recommend it because of the colorful illustrations, excellent historical information, and it's easy to obtain. This, along with The Story of the World and Rome History Pockets make a great unit study for primary age children.

Ancient Rome History Pockets. Fun for K-4th.

See my Ancient Rome Unit Study for more ideas.

HISTORY TIMELINE and MAPS:

Wonders of Old, A Blank Timeline Book of World History. See Reviews for more information.
