In this project, the students will be researching a pharaoh. You can assign the pharaoh or you can have the students pick a pharaoh. The students will researching information about their pharaoh, creating a tri-fold board, and writing a research paper. Because research tends to be difficult for young students, I created a research guide to help students figure out what information they will need to put into each paragraph as well as identify the information they will need when citing their sources. This is a very fun and creative unit for students who are starting to do research and learn about pharaohs.
