Researching Ancient Egyptians in Free Time

Researching for Fun

A little peek at our evening.

Just for fun, we were reading a history storybook before bed. I googled some pictures as we read. Sphinx. The Great Pyramid. Mummification. It is fun to see lots of real life pictures to illustrate what we're talking about.

And when we were done Hunter kept googling things.

He clicked on pictures and went from site to site. He searched one thing after another. Google's feature of guessing what you are typing (or suggesting similar searches) was a huge help that lead to lot's more searches.

He read about the country of Egypt, Egyptian kings, Egyptian names, mummification. He watched videos about Tutankhamen, Cleopatra, pyramid building.

When he found out that most mummies are no longer in pyramids but in museums, he asked if we could go to a museum and to plan the trip soon. So we talked to Dad and agreed to go to the history museum near us this week or next.

Researching for Fun

All in about 30 minutes before bed.

Then he kissed me goodnight and said, "Can I please look up more about ancient Egypt tomorrow?"

Did I mention that I love technology?

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall beat off from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gathered one by one, O ye children of Israel." Isaiah 27:12
