In this lesson, students will learn about Hatshepsut, one of ancient Egypt's few female pharaohs, and her significant achievements, including her rise to power, her extensive building projects, and her successful trade expedition to Punt. They will also explore the challenges she faced as a female ruler and the efforts to erase her legacy after her death. Students will have the opportunity to achieve this through choosing their own method of learning, from reading, research, and video watching options, as well as the chance to engage in extension activities. This lesson includes a self-marking quiz for students to demonstrate their learning.
