Today's Focus Question How did the pharaohs gain authority over a large kingdom?
Guided Reading: Egypt Under the Pharaohs Today we are going to read about how the pharaohs, or rulers of Egypt, were able to gain the authority to rule over Egypt.

As we read excerpts of your Social Studies workbook below, you will use the document Sources of Pharaoh's Authority, which is located in your Social Studies Google Classroom, to take notes on this topic.
