Egyptian gods, goddesses, and rulers RESEARCH report and speech
Imagine what it would be like to meet the gods, goddesses, and rulers of ancient Egypt! We
will have an opportunity to experience this on Friday, January 17th when each student
BECOMES the assigned person. Students will dress up in costume, with appropriate props,
and give a speech as if they ARE the god/goddess/ruler based on the research report that
they write in advance. The entire report is due on the same day as the speech, but each part
must be turned in along the way. The project must include:
1. Title page with title, student’s name, date, and an appropriate, detailed, colored picture
Typed, original research report with 8 headings/titles followed by 8 paragraphs of 4-6 sentences for each of
the following things (32-48 sentences required)
Gods/Goddesses directions:
Rulers/Pharoahs directions:
2. Introduction to the report (hook, background information, connection, thesis)
3. Name of god/goddess and what it means (origin)

like physically
4. What the ruler is supposed to have looked like

7. What things are associated with their god/goddess
and/or What “story” is their god/goddess most

important)?

9. Conclusion (Imagine statement, restate what your report was about using different words, repeat your
thesis in a different way, and end with a powerful ending
10. Hand – drawn, detailed, and colored picture of what the god/goddess would have looked like and what
items would be seen with the god/goddess. Must fill up entire page
11. Reference page listing the sources for all information in the report following the correct MLA format (see
example provided at the end of the directions
12. Written speech that is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than the research report. Speech should include a hook
to draw us into your speech, who you are, what you are famous for, interesting facts that we would find
fascinating, entertaining, or informative, and a conclusion. It should be about 1:15-1:45 long. You must
prepare and memorize your speech because no notes will be allowed during the presentation

I am aware of this long-term Egypt research report and speech project. I will regularly check with my child and assist
him/her as needed so the due dates are met along the way and the final presentation day will be successful for my student.
