Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece Interactive

In Virginia, students learn about Ancient Egypt in 2nd grade and Ancient Greece in 3rd grade. One of my coworkers showed me this AWESOME interactive site for each civilization: The Children's University of Manchester . There are other interactives on the site but I really enjoyed walking through the Ancient China and Ancient Egypt ones!

You can see in the screenshot below the different categories on the left that are covered. My favorite was being able to type and see my name in hieroglyphs:

And learning the Greek alphabet:

I also really like the "Test Your Knowledge" section in the Ancient Greece interactive which gives the kids instant feedback and allows them to try again if they answer a question incorrectly.

If you teach about these two civilizations, this website is a MUST!!
