- I took an Ancient History course in high school. I’m not going to lie — it was boring. The textbook was dry as dust. That class was something I had to endure to get enough history credits to graduate. It tainted my opinion of history for a long time to come, unfortunately. It wasn’t until I started to homeschool my kids that I gained a new appreciation for history and it became one of my favorite subjects to study. Having great hands-on, immersive resources like Project Passport: Ancient Egypt from Home School in the Woods has made all the difference... - Sara at “Embracing Destiny” blog

- The past few weeks the kids and I have been immersed in the world of pharaohs and pyramids. We’ve crafted, eaten, read and written our way through ancient Egypt history. And honestly, it’s been a wonderful re-awakening to all that I love about homeschooling – real, hands-on learning together. From making cartouches out of salt dough to eating authentic ancient Egyptian cuisine, we’ve been very impressed with the “tour” of ancient Egypt history we’ve received from Home School In the Woods’ newest unit study-based curriculum Project Passport: Ancient Egypt... – Alicia Michelle at “Your Vibrant Family” blog
