The National Geographic Kids website is a resource for educators and curious kids, and it has amassed a huge collection of information about Egypt, including pictures, videos and games all based on Egypt.

Children can browse the National Geographic Kids website for free, or their can parents sign up for the paid Adventure Pass version, which includes more in-depth activities as well as first access to new content on the website. A discount on the Adventure Pass is available in the National Graphic magazine, according to the website's FAQ.

HistoryForKids.net is just as kid-friendly, and it provides information about everything from the making of mummies to biographies of famous pharaohs. It also has art galleries, where children can see different examples of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and statues. There are also ready-made quizzes for each section.
