Introduction
  • Picture this you are twelve years old and you are
    just about to getMARRIED! Waitpicture this,
    you have a horrible toothache and your mom gives
    you FRIED MICE to help relieve your pain. I have
    just one more, imagine you are a tough young
    boywearing a skirt and makeup, eyeliner,
    lipstick the works. You are probably hoping that
    this doesnt happen to youright?

3
  • Well, never fear this was the culture of the
    Ancient Egyptians. Youre probably curious as to
    why the Ancient Egyptians had so many different
    customs, but to them all of the previously
    mentioned items were considered normal. Really
    makes you feel happy to live now in the United
    States. But let us pretend for a minute that you
    did live in Ancient Egypt what other kinds of
    things would you be doing, wearing, or even
    saying?
  • What would life be like in Ancient Egypt?

4
  • Well, today is the day you are going to find out,
    because you are about to embark on a great
    Ancient Egyptian webquest that will allow you to
    get to know more about the life of the Ancient
    Egyptians.

5
Tasks
  • This webquest will be completed cooperatively,
    with an exception of a few independent
    activities. Groups of five will be assigned to
    ensure thorough and intense investigation. The
    next slide contains a list of tasks you and your
    group members must complete before you have
    successfully finished this webquest and before
    you can call yourself Ancient Egyptian experts.

6
Your Tasks are as followed
  • Collectively you will keep a research and travel
    log noting where you have been researching and
    what you have found in your journey to learn more
    about Ancient Egyptians. After each day when
    your quest for knowledge has ended your group
    must write in your travel log all of the days
    activities.
  • Independently, create a back in time letter.
    This letter will be follow- ed up by a one page
    statement on why you would want or not what to
    live in Ancient Egypt.
  • Final and last task will be to create a guidebook
    on Ancient Egypt, which will be called Mummies
    Guide to Ancient Egypt. This guidebook will
    include the information that you and your group
    have gathered on Ancient Egypt. It must include,
    but not limited to these learning areas
    Map/location/geographical features,
    Hieroglyphics, Mummies, Ancient Egypt Daily Life,
    Pyramids, and Pharaohs

7
Process
  • If you are ready to learn more about the lives of
    Ancient Egyptians follow the below directions.
  • To begin you and your group members must select
    job titles that you will hold and carry
    throughout the entire webquest. Presented on the
    next slides are lists of jobs and their
    descriptions. Choose the job that you feel you
    could perform the best.
  • Remember the lifeskill of cooperation!

  • This is a person who studies human cultures by
    looking at artifacts and remains from ancient
    civilizations.
  • This person is responsible for the daily life and
    pharaoh section of the Mummies Guide to Ancient
    Egypt.

9
Architect
  • This is a person involved in the planning,
    designing, and oversight of a buildings
    construction.
  • This person is responsible for the pyramid
    section of the Mummies Guide to Ancient Egypt.

10
Embalmer
  • This is a person who uses the process of
    embalming or mummification to temporarily
    preserve a body after the person has died.
  • This person is responsible for the mummification
    process of the Mummies Guide to Ancient Egypt.

11

    Guide to Ancient Egypt.

13
  • The jobs explain what topics each person is
    responsible for in the Mummies Guide to Ancient
    Egypt. But remember the topics listed for the
    guide are just the minimum required topics.
    Other topics can be researched and added to the
    guide. If a group member finishes their section
    early it might be a good idea for that person to
    research other topics from Ancient Egypt.

14
  • After each group member has chosen their job
    title, your first task as a group is to figure
    out what you already know about Ancient Egypt and
    what you would like to know. Independently you
    will complete a K-W-L chart on Life in Ancient
    Egypt. After you have finished your K-W-L charts
    you and your group members must discuss your
    K-W-L charts. Do you have the same information?
    Do you want to learn the same things? This is an
    opportunity for you to find out what things you
    and your group wants to know about life in
    Ancient Egypt.

Travel and Research Log
  • Remember as a group you will keep a
    travel/research log noting where you have been
    researching and what you have found in your

    ended your group must write in your travel log
    all of the days activities.
  • This log will be kept in a binder provided to you
    by your instructor.
  • It is essential that you record your information
    into the research log each day. This will be
    your tool when you create your Mummies Guide to
    Ancient Egypt.

Urgent News!!!
19
Important News from the Principal
  • It turns out that our principal Mr. Smith has
    heard about the important research we have been
    doing in our class on Ancient Egypt.
  • He also thought that the Mummies guide to Ancient
    Egypt books were a great idea.
  • So do you know what he did?

Tell us, what did he do?
20
  • He liked our project so much that he thought he
    could sell the guide books to raise money for our
    school.
  • Well, it turns out that the author of the For
    Dummies books liked the Mummies guide to Ancient
    Egypt books so much that he wants to buy copies
    of them from our class!

21
  • P. S If you didnt know the For Dummies, books
    are reference books written for hard-working
    people who know they're not dumb, but find
    certain topics hard to understand.
  • So, the author thought our guide book would help
    these hard-working people learn more about
    Ancient Egypt.
  • Do you know what this means.?

22
  • It means that we better get to work if we want to
    make these the best guide books people have ever
    seen!!!!!
  • Time for more research

23
Additional Readings
  • On the next slide there are five pieces of
    literature. Find the piece of literature under

25
I think it is now time for a little regrouping..

    students with your same job description. For
    example all of the architects from each group
    will gather together, as well as the embalmers,
    etc.

26
  • Once you have regrouped yourself, you and you new
    group members need to compare information.
  • Teach, discuss, and talk about the information

    original group.

Ready, Set, Teach!
  • After all of the research and collaboration you
    have done, you are now an expert on your Ancient
    Egyptian topic.
  • Well, what better way to show off new found
    knowledge than to teach what you have learned to
    your group members.

28
  • Cooperatively decide how you are going to teach
    what you have learned to the rest of your group
    members.
  • Remember everyone needs to know the information
    you possess, so remember your skill of
    communication and active listening!
  • What are you waiting for. TEACH!

29
The end is nearing.
  • Now that you have learned many new things about
    the life of the Ancient Egyptiansit is time to
    put that information to good use.
  • Your next task is to write a letter pretending
    you are living back in Ancient Egypt.
  • Follow this letter up with a short paragraph
    stating whether you would have liked or disliked
    living in Ancient Egypt. (look at the next slide
    for more information)

    Ancient Egyptians. Such as what they wore, what
    they ate, what they did for fun.
  • Click on the Checklist to find out everything you
    need to have in your letter.

31
  • Dont forget your paragraph on whether or not you
    would have liked to live in Ancient Egypt.
  • This paragraph along with your Back in Time
    Letter need to be handed into your instructor.

    added to your research and travel binder.
