Fun, easy for uncrafty teachers/parents
My 9 year old daughter really loves crafts, but got stuck with a mom who is not all that enthralled about setting up that kind of thing. But the activities were really fun for her without being a major chore for me.

She did get a good overview of ancient Egypt. Good ideas went into developing different activities. If you want a really deep study of Egypt, use this resource as a high-interest supplement for other reading and/or class discussion.

I do wish there was a single list of all the materials needed to get through the whole book so I could buy it all at once, but I was able to piece that together fairly easily. Each activity did have a materials list.

We liked it enough that we ordered the one for ancient Greece to do next.

Better suited for grades1-3
While there is a great collection of activities and information related to Ancient Egypt, most of them were quite boring and repetitious for my 4th & 5th grade boys. We ended up pulling out a couple of the activities and using them as a supplement for another history course.

Great learning tool!
These books really helped my son to love history. It adds just enough to spur on thought and exploration.

Fun for kids
This was a fun supplemental product to add to our current material on Ancient Egypt. It has a lot of good activities that the students enjoyed.

The Kids Loved This!
We did a year-long study of ancient civilizations and built a theme-based notebook for our work. We didn't use the construction paper pockets, but all the activities adapted very easily to our notebooks. The prepared pages make it easy for the teacher to have the materials ready before class. It also works well for those who do lap-booking. The activities were fun for the students. They continued talking outside of class about the things they had learned. My students loved the "Fast Facts" cards.
