I never liked history when I was in school because it was so dry and boring. I hardly remember any of it, even all the facts that I had to spend hours memorizing just to pass the tests. Homeschooling is so different though. I have learned so much more about History as I have been relearning it with my children. One thing that always helps it to stick out are all the fun hands on activities that we do to help solidify what we are learning.
If you are studying Ancient Egypt with your children this year then you will want to add these fun hands-on activities to your studies!
