Product Description
This is a great way to start a unit on Ancient Egypt. The webquest begins with a KWL ("L" portion to be completed after finishing the webquest), which also allows students to stay on topic as computers boot up.

The webquest can be completed in about 1.5-2 classes (if 50 minute classes) or the remainder can be assigned as homework.

Student objectives:
- Synthesize information from multiple passages of informative text.
- Paraphrase and summarize information.
- Identify and record facts from an article.
- Create definitions for vocabulary.
- Compare and contrast different aspects of Egyptian life between gender and socio-economic status.

The webquest uses 3 different websites:
- http://ancientegypt.co.uk/
- http://www.ancient-egypt-online.com/
- http://www.history.com/topics/ancient-history/ancient-egypt

Topics I have not included in the webquest (because I will be doing projects that emphasize these topics later in the unit): mummification and religion

**BONUS** The last page of the webquest is a list of 22 vocabulary words for the Ancient Egypt unit. Students must hunt and create their own definitions for these vocabulary words (in class, we go over them to ensure students' definitions are correct).

This activity IS CLASSROOM TESTED and has been a success in creating anticipation for the Ancient Egypt unit, as well as providing a good base of information in a way that's more engaging than just reading the textbook.
