Help your students develop and refine their research skills. This lesson teaches important research skills including how to gather research, a research record for student use, models for research paragraphs, formatting in-text citations, and paraphrasing information. The content of this research project is based on Ancient Egypt, while the focus for the research project is “How did the Ancient Egyptians use narratives and myths to explain the world around them?” Links to online passages are included! This lesson also teaches students to use higher level thinking skills as they explore the research focus. The lessons can be modified for any research topic, however.
