Name:Egypt Web Quest

Brief Description of the Site:
In this Ancient Egypt Web Quest, students learn about Ancient Egyptian daily life, Egyptian mummies, Egyptian Hieroglyphics, King Tut (Tutankhamen), Egyptian games, and Archeology, and solve a mystery too.

How to use the site:
Students work through six missions solving essential questions as they travel. The Missions are Daily Life, Mummies, Tomb Raiders, Hieroglyphics, King Tut, and The Burial Mask. Students will find more links at the bottom of each mission page. Depending on classroom time, teachers can do the complete Web quest over a week, or zip through during a computer lab or class time by doing only the "Top Secret Documents". My students did both; some choose to do presentations based on their findings.
