Ancient History and Geography

In tutoring ancient history this week, we finished up looking at Old Kingdom Egypt and did some mapping activities to wrap up our studies of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.  I utilized some maps from this workbook I've had a long time:

World Map Skills, Grade 6

We also began creating a timeline of our studies, utilizing various stickers and the review cards from Story of the World.  We'll work on it periodically after completing every 6 or 8 chapters.  After we get more done, I'll try to remember to take a picture of it.

Next week, we'll be taking a look at ancient Jewish civilization and culture through reading Story of the World chapters 6 and 14, as well as some of these library books:
