Ancient Egypt Webquest and Video Analysis with Key- this is a 12 page document that contains a webquest and a completed teachers key for easy marking. It contains 38 questions based on a Crash Course World History video and the History.com website.
Students will begin this assignment by watching the Crash Course video: Ancient Egypt. The video will go over the three Egyptian Kingdoms- The Old, Middle, and New, as well as the several Intermittent Periods between the Kingdoms. The video impresses upon students the sheer massive length of time that Ancient Egyptian civilization existed. The thousands of years of history means that the construction of the pyramids to the time of King Tut was over 1200 years. The video also discusses the importance of the Nile River in Egyptian civilization as well as the evolving religious structure of the society. After finishing the video, students will proceed to an article on History.com which goes over Ancient Egyptian history. The article also discusses the Three Kingdoms of Ancient Egyptian history but also goes beyond that. The fall of Egypt to the Persian Empire, the conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great, followed by the conquest of the Roman Empire are all chronicled.
This webquest can be easily used as an introduction to the topic, a study guide, or a quick and easy sub plan.
