Ancient Egypt Books & Resources List

Hi again !
Thanks for coming back.

If you’ve been following along with my Free Ancient World History Curriculum  posts, you may like to check out the book lists for each section.  These books are NOT required for the studies… they’re just my favorite resources (most I’ve personally used).  You will find the few required books for the curriculum included on each plan’s page (start HERE for the first part in the series).

*Spine Texts for the Ancient History Units-

I used 2 main history texts as the spine for the entire Free Ancient World History Curriculum series-
A Child’s History of the World” by Virgil Hillyer (you’ll see it in the lessons as -> CHOW), and “The Story of the World” series by Susan Wise Bauer (abbreviated in the lessons- SOTW).   HOWEVER, these (and all the other books I listed) are just a suggestion.  You can use one of them, all of them, another text you already have, or none of them at all!  Each daily lesson has TONS of online reading links, hands-on project suggestions, and  other options to fully explore the given topic.
