Ancient Egyptian Pathfinder


Welcome to the Ancient Egyptian pathfinder for GSHS year 8 students. Here you will find many resources to help you discover information on Ancient Egyptian life. This pathfinder has been designed to assist you with your Ancient Egyptian comparative essay for SOSE.


You have been asked to complete research for a comparative essay. In order for you to keep all of your research notes together, you have been given a comparison chart. This chart is important as it will assist you with your essay. When you discover useful information, either copy and paste it into your comparison chart or write it into your comparison chart. When you write the essay, you will refer to these notes and write them in your own words.

Part of this task requires you to hand in a bibliography from a range of resources. What is a bibliography? A bibliography is a list of all the resources you used when doing your research. This does not mean every resource you looked at or read. Instead you only record the ones from which you got information. You can either use 'Cite Ace Version 5' which is on the cybrary intranet, or go to Neils Toolboxwhich will assist you with the creation of your own bibliography.
