One of the things I am looking forward to the most this year, is returning to our Story of the World history curriculum. I love studying ancient civilizations and one of the most fascinating to learn about is Ancient Egypt! I was tickled to find a great Ancient Egypt Mini-Unit freebie from Educents which will work perfectly when we are studying this great empire this year. Here is a peek at what is included, so you can snag it for yourself---but hurry...it's only a freebie until 8/19/2015!!
