These books are filled with hands-on activities perfect for accompanying your study of ancient civilizations. Each book discusses a fascinating ancient culture, covering food, clothing, buildings, religious beliefs, festivals, family life, and social organization. After each bit of information is given, the book provides a project for kids to construct that will remind them of what they learned and provide them with a neat keepsake. There are 12-13 projects in each book, each with easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions accompanied by full-color photographs at each step. Materials needed are usually cheap and easy to find like cardboard, paint, straws, felt, markers, and air-drying clay. Project examples from the Ancient Egyptians book include making a pharaoh's crown, making and playing the board game Senet, cooking Ful Medames (bean stew), fashioning a scarab armband, and even building a pyramid. Full-color photographs of ancient sites and artifacts are scattered throughout the books, as well as additional fascinating facts. Hands-on projects provide a great way to get students interested in a subject and these books have plenty of such activities to keep kids busy and involved. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
