Is it right for archaeologists and historians to disturb the dead? What if they gain new knowledge about an ancient culture in the process?
In this webquest your students will be answering questions to multiple tasks that will guide them through primary source photographs and secondary source readings in order for them to form an opinion on whether King Tutankhamen's tomb should have been opened. Students do not have to address the supposed curse in the final essay, but it is in there as a resource in order to peak student interests.
At the end of the activities students will be expected to write an opinion essay, citing the sources they interacted with throughout the tasks.
The webquest is held through a website which will guide them through each task, resource, and question
