Team 0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c Fun Fact! Have you ever noticed that The Sphinx is missing its nose? That's because sometime between 1798 and 1801 Napoleon Bonaparte and his army used it for target practices, eventually knocking it off with a cannonball! Fun Fact! The Sphinx does not only come from Egypt. The Greeks also had their own version of the mythological monster. Theirs had the head of a woman, the front half of a lion, and the wings of a bird. When Was The Sphinx Created? Have you ever heard of Pharaoh Khafre? He was Pharaoh who lived some 4,500 years ago. There was a great possibility that he created the sphinx, making it only that old. There is another thought, that it was created over 10,000 years ago. Pretty old, huh? There is yet another theory, that it was created in about 3,000 BC. What is so Mysterious about the Sphinx? When you think of Great Sphinx, what comes to mind? Egypt, Statue, Mystery? What is so mysterious about the Sphinx, anyway? Well, for starters, nobody knows how or why it was created. Was it used to worship gods? or for something else? Who created it? Was it king Khafre? or someone else? No one knows anything about the sphinx that is absolutely true, which makes it more mysterious. Who Made the Sphinx? No one is quite sure who made the Sphinx, but archeologists have found rain residue around the base, which leads them to believe that the sphinx could be over 10,000 years old, before Egypt was even a desert! There is another theory, though, that an Pharaoh named Khafre Had it made to look like him. Websites! -www.Flickr.com. N.p., n.d. Web. 22 May 2013.

There are many theories as to when or why the sphinx was made, but no one knows for sure. The Sphinx is a large statue, carved out of a single large block of limestone. It has the head of a man and the body of a lion. Approximately 66 ft. wide and 240 ft. tall, it lays in the sand with other pyramids and tombs in Giza. No one is quite sure why the Sphinx was made, but some theories include the possibility that there could be a tomb or chamber under it. 2+2=4 What is The Sphinx? Thanks for Watching! Digital Literacy Q4 Research Process:

I chose my topic of the sphinx because I really liked how the sphinx was so mysterious. I thought it was really cool how there might be a tomb or chamber under it.

I picked my topic by looking it up on Britannica, and then picking the most useful articles. I also found some pictures on Flickr.

I picked Prezi to do my project because it was like a cooler version of a PowerPoint. There were a lot of effects I liked, too. I liked all the different templates you could use, and how there were a bunch of different themes and colors.

I learned how to use Prezi, and how to add cool effects. I also learned a lot about the sphinx, like its exact height. I learned how to get pictures from flicker, and how to use Britannica better.
