Summary
  • Ancient Egypt: Travel back in time to ancient Egypt, a civilization that began along the Nile River more than 5,000 years ago. Children will learn about the importance of the Nile in daily life, the lives of kings, craftsmen and farmers, and the legacy of Egyptian art and architecture that still inspires people today
  • Ancient Mesopotamia: Where did civilization begin? Many believe it began in ancient Mesopotamia. This program examines the Sumerian civilization in detail and takes students to the ancient lands of the Babylonians and the Assyrians to examine their lives and customs, much of which we have already learned from the Bible
  • Ancient China: This program introduces the first four Chinese dynasties, beginning with the Han Dynasty, founded in 206 B.C., and continues back in time through the Q'in, Chou (Zhou) and earliest Shang dynasties. The building of the Great Wall and the development of writing, silk and bronze are also covered
  • Ancient Inca: Students will visit the ruins of the lost city of Machu Picchu, a remarkably well-preserved example of an Incan city. Artifacts like pottery fragments, pieces of cloth, old toys and stone tools help archeologists piece together a picture of the daily life of the Inca
