The Ancient Egyptians used picture words to write called hieroglyphics. It is a very old form of writing that they starting using as early as 3000 B.C. Hieroglyphics was a very complicated way of writing involving 1000's of symbols.
This internet hunt gives your students background information as they read and answer questions about hieroglyphics. During the search they use a variety of strategies and skills that will prepare them to do research using the internet.
