I’m not sure how homeschool moms survived before the introduction of the internet. I can’t even imagine how hard it was to find resources. Thankfully, today we don’t have to worry about struggling to find what we need to homeschool. Resources are available as quickly as you can type “How to Teach Ancient Egypt Online Unit Studies.” And now, with Techie Homeschool Mom’s online unit studies, homeschool moms can find all the resources they need for a complete online course on many different topics.

This is not the first online unit study we have used by Techie Homeschool Mom. It is, however, the most comprehensive we have used to date. Follow me on Day 2 of the How To Teach Ancient Egypt in a Way Your Kids Will Love Series as we delve into the Ancient Egypt Online Unit Studies.
Ancient Egypt Online Unit Studies
What I really love about the Online Unit Studies are that I can pick and choose what I want to use. The layout is very simple and easy to navigate as you can see from this screenshot of the introductory screen.
Once inside the unit study, the table of contents moves to the left side. After the student has finished that portion of the online unit study, they simply click Complete and Continue. The screen will move to the next in the list of topics and the previous topic will “gray out” and be checked off.
I can easily see what the online unit study will be covering and add it to what I already have planned. I can also order it in a way that coincides with my other resources. In other unit studies, I have used the online unit study as our full curriculum and haven’t added anything to it. I like to have options because I am notorious for dismantling a curriculum to fit my style and schedule.
Another feature of the Online Unit Study is the ability to have multiple students using the same unit study. In fact, my girls are usually working at the same time on separate laptops. In this case, the “checked” off lessons may not accurately portray where the student is currently in the program. However, we haven’t found this to be a big deal.
The lessons range from learning about historical artifacts and people to hands-on crafts and projects. I love having all these options available. Do I choose to work through every project? Nope. Some days we can’t fit another project and some days we can. So we pick and choose the projects that we are most interested in learning. It’s a win-win.

You can see in the lesson plan in Day 1: How To Teach Ancient Egypt in a Way Your Kids Will Love Resources, that I have added the Online Unit Study in its own column and have reordered it to work with my other resources.

Hi, I’m Dachelle. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 in the South. I love chocolate and have been known to hide it from my children. I can often be found reading a good book (or even sometimes just an okay book) and enjoying a jar of Nutella — don’t judge. I blog, here, at HideTheChocolate.com when I’m not creating book clubs and making lists…lots and lots of lists (it’s an addiction). Learn more…

I panicked enough about homeschooling with the internet!! I hate to think of life without it. This is a great post and I shall be investigating!
Haha! That’s true! The internet can be wonderful and frustrating at the same time.

The internet definitely makes homeschooling easier in a lot of ways. It can become overwhelming at times with information overload, though! My daughter has asked me before how I did research when I was in school. 🙂 Hours spent at the library with the handy dandy card catalogue! I do love having just about any information I want at the touch of a button.
Thanks for linking up at Literacy Musing Mondays!
P. S. I mailed the book yesterday that you won. Supposed to arrive Monday. 🙂
Thanks, Brandi! Looking forward to getting a little “Happy Mail”.
And, yes, the card catalog! I remember sitting and reading tons of Times Magazines in the library!
