Egyptian History (Grades 2 - 6)

   Very many people do not feel adequately prepared to teach Egyptian history.  Do you know about the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt?  Do you know about the significance of the rosetta stone?  Can you name the 12 tribes of Israel?  Can you describe the Code of Hammurabi?  Certainly, it would be wonderful to visit Egypt and learn about the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Sphinx first hand.  However, if you can't do so, this information should solve the problem.




Marlin and Laurie Detweiler have created a series of 32 cards which can be used to teach a one-year course in Egyptian history. Each card has an approximate date, a picture representative of the time or event to be studied that week, as well as a summary of the week's lesson, and a list of references for that week. The cards are numbered so that students can easily sequence the events. There is a teachers' manual as well. Note that these cards are part of a larger series that was created for use at the Christian Logos School in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and, therefore, can not be used directly in the public schools. The history lessons are tied very closely to a second series of cards used to teach the Bible. After all, isn't EXODUS part of Egyptian history? They would, however, be an excellent reference for a public school teacher. The cards are published and sold by Veritas Press. The items listed below with * are the ones the Detweilers and Veritas Press have recommend be used with the cards.
