This WebQuest is designed to engage students in Internet research while learning about the history of ancient Egypt. Students will read, take notes, and answer questions about a linked site. They share this information with their cooperative group and develop an essay or modify to create a PowerPoint about the results of their investigation.
Students will recognize and investigate problems; formulate and propose solutions supported by reason and evidence; express and interpret information and ideas; use appropriate instruments, electronic equipment, computers and networks to access information, process ideas and communicate results; learn and contribute productively as individuals and as members of groups; make inferences about historical events and eras using historical maps and other historical sources; identify the difference between historical fact and interpretation.
