I prepared for our journey by printing out the Travel Planner: Quick Stop Itinerary. This 3 page document gives a brief overview of the 25 Stops we will make on our trip. Stop 1 and Stop 2 Lay the Foundation. During these two lessons students will prepare their passport, luggage, and Scrapbook of Sights. The passport and luggage will be used for each Project Passport Study. I'm kind of relieved that we will not have to make a new luggage folder for each study!
During the first two stops you also begin two long term projects: a newspaper and a lapbook. Because I am only using this with Supergirl we are skipping the assignments related to creating a newspaper. She loves lapbooking so are going to be making the different books to put into a final lapbook when we reach the end of our trip.
Some of the Stops include:
- Everyday Life
- Religion and the "gods"
- Egypt's Most Famous Woman
- Egypt Fades Away
- Ancient Egypt and the Bible
- and it ends with Final Stop -- Packing it Up!
The PDFs are all organized into folders. One folder is Text which is your "Travel Guide" another is Itineraries. Each Lesson or "Stop" has a Text PDF and an Itinerary PDF. I am reading the Text aloud from my computer but you could print it out and bind it into a nice book or do what Home School in the Woods suggests and store the "Guide Book" and the Itineraries in a 3-ring binder. I am printing out each Itinerary as I need it as this is the "what to do and how to do it document". I could print it all out and once but I am just not that organized enough.
- Souvenir Craft Cards - Supergirl is looking forward to the Dress like an Egyptian craft! The Cards have instructions for different craft projects. These are stored in the
- 3-D Projects ~ all of the Craft Cards I've looked at are 3-D but there are other 3-D projects such as making Mud Bricks
- Audio Tours - the Project Passport Study includes MP3s. In Stop 2 we took a tour down the Nile River. In Stop 5 we'll listen to "Interview with an Embalmer"
- Snapshot Moments ~ these are items to add to the timeline which is stored in the Scrapbook of Sights
- Edible Projects ~ We'll be making a Garbanzo Bean salad to bring to church for potluck!
- and MORE! yes more
I am really impressed with the HISTORY through the Ages Project Passport World History Study: Ancient Egypt. We have Ancient Greece and Middle Ages. I can't decide which we should do next. They both look just as fantastic as Ancient Egypt.
