A Sphinx is a mythological creature with the body of a lion and the head of a person. In Ancient Egypt a lot of times the head was that of a Pharaoh or a god.
This is a web search designed to give students historical background knowledge about the Great Sphinx and its role in Egyptian history. During the search they use a variety of strategies and skills that will prepare them to do research using the internet.
During the internet hunt the students are asked to answer such questions as:
How did the sphinx look when first built?
What happened to the nose?
Who restored it and why?
There is an online 10 question quiz at the end for the learner to see how much they can remember.
