PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a research project about ancient Egyptian pharaohs that requires students to role-play as Egyptologists-in-training.

Students may choose one of these eight pharaohs: Akhenaten, Cleopatra, Hatshepsut, Khufu, Ramesses II, Seti I, Tutankhamen, or Thutmose III.

Their task is to evaluate their chosen pharaoh's strengths and weaknesses as a leader and their contributions to Egyptian life and culture.

Here are some of the specifics:

For students: the role-playing letter introduction, step-by-step directions for implementation (written in plain English for students to easily understand), research logs, and a works cited page to document their sources.

For teachers: a list of required materials, a pacing guide, two rubrics, and a list of reputable online resources for students to use when they conduct their research.

This project is intended as a cumulative assignment to enrich a unit on Ancient Egypt. It would work best with middle school or high school students. You might modify it for mature elementary school students.

Additionally, this project demands higher level critical thinking, as students must assess the importance of the pharaoh they have chosen. (This is not a biographical sketch.) They must also demonstrate teamwork skills, research skills, proper MLA citation, 21st century technology skills, the ability to work against a deadline, and much more.

Last, if you like this offering, would you kindly consider reviewing it for others? Thank you.

I was so excited about adding this to my Ancient Egyptian unit this year, but the final products were not that great. I know it has everything to do with the class I have this year. Looking forward to doing it again next year and hoping for different results. :) Loved the resource!!!

I just finished this project with my students who are above grade level. They enjoyed the research element, wrote a research paper and more importantly put together a visual product for their oral presentation and gave there opinion with supporting evidence. It was a ready to use unit that I 'tweeked' to fit my time and students. I would definitely recommend it.
