The original Egyptians were farmers, not fighters. They didn't see the need for an organized army. They were well protected by the natural boundaries of the desert that surrounded the empire.
This internet hunt gives your students background information as they read and answer questions about what changed for the Ancient Egyptians and forced them to maintain a standing army. During the search they use a variety of strategies and skills that will prepare them to do research using the internet.
This is a great way to increase your students' ability to use technology as part of their whole learning experience.
