Tapestry of Grace is offering a free trial of the first 3 weeks of Year 1 Redesigned. This is their entire Ancient Egypt "mini-unit!:" Not only do you get to use everything included for the first 3 weeks of Year 1, but they have also included all of their supplementary materials for those 3 weeks!
I started using Tapestry of Grace last year with their Year 4 plan (The Twentieth Century). I had previously been using Ambleside Online, which I really liked, but I had a hard time implementing the program the way I wanted to. It was easy for me to leave things out and feel like I was "behind." Tapestry offered me the structure that I felt I was lacking with extensive teacher's notes and easy-to use overviews and student pages, along with discussion suggestions. As a bonus, my children really like Tapestry.
We are now using Year 1 Redesigned, and I am so happy that we stuck with this curriculum. It definitely costs more than Ambleside (which is free), but I am able to obtain most of the books I need from the library, and I don't regret the money I spend.
This free trial would be a great way to get a unit of Ancient Egypt in while trying a great curriculum at the same time. In my opinion, you really have to use the program to get a good feel for it. I had a friend who lent me her materials for a week, so I was able to use it before buying it. I am so glad that Tapestry is making this sample available. Enjoy!
