Ancient Egypt WebQuest
(by Jennifer Blake, Robert Fox, Jared Braun, and Martin Messer)

Students are required to become "cyber archaeologists" and "dig" through web sites and other classroom resources to create a variety of artifacts for an ancient Egyptian museum exhibit. Each Exhibit will contain artifacts from four different categories: Egyptian Daily Life, Pharaohs and Gods, Hieroglyphics, and Mummies. (Recommended for Elementary and Middle School)
