Top 5 Ancient Egypt Movies on Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube!
This is a guest post from Angela Newsom at Cross and Quill Media.
Text books, sentence memorization, reluctant readers. History can be a bore to some kids, but exciting to others. What makes the difference between the two students (or parents for that matter!)?
One of the most important things in being a teacher at home is to look for extra resources to help you in your task. You may use a certain curriculum that has a history textbook, they usually have only a few pages to try and etch important facts into the mind of your child.
You can look at a myriad of websites to try and find the things to make your historical studies come to life, but that takes so much time. Time that you do not have.
I felt this way when homeschooling my children. I have five little blessings under the age of 13, and it can be difficult to get all of the school aged kiddos to understand certain things from the history story of the world.
I looked for some videos to go along with what we were studying and found that the deeper I looked, the more that I found. I wanted a way to catalog all the things that I was finding, and so I bit the bullet and started a website.
Cross and Quill Media was born out of my need to have all the free video resources that I was finding in one place. I figured that there would be other homeschool parents that would want to find the same things, and boy was I right!
So many people have been cutting the cable box and turning to Netflix (and other media options) for their video needs. If you have a Prime Membership to Amazon, then you can watch tons of content for free or a small fee. Many people have only thought of YouTube as a place to watch funny baby or animal videos, but it is way better that that!
As you start off your study in history, you will most likely begin with Ancient Egypt. Almost all of this time will cross over into Biblical events, so you can do some of both.
One of the things that you need to consider is how far you want to go into the study of Ancient Egypt. There are some pretty gruesome practices when it comes to mummies. You will also find a culture that worships statues, false gods, and has a warped view of the “afterlife”. You will come across this in many documentaries, so you may want to preview them if you are concerned about the things that will be covered.
Here are the top five Ancient Egypt movies from Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube, not in any particular order.
There are lots more videos to chose from, but this is a great start for your family as you study Ancient Egypt. Try to point out pyramid structures or buildings in familiar movies for this era. Have fun learning how to write your name with hieroglyphics, make a costume out of a sheet, mummify a Barbie doll, and have an Egyptian feast! It is time to make history FUN! Enjoy your viewing and come over to Cross and Quill Media to visit us at anytime…
