This is my paper so far:
The Pharaoh Khufu, or commonly known as Cheops, ruled in the 4th
Dynasty. He was the 2nd Pharaoh of that period and he ruled for about 23 years.
Not much is known about this Pharaoh's personal life or his accomplishments. His most known accomplishment was the Great Pyramid of Egypt.

"Kheops brought the country into all kinds of misery. He closed the temples, forbide subjects to offer sacirifices,

I'm afraid I don't know much more than that. But, I'm a wizard at search engines. Would you like for me to try it?

You kind of need to give a little more of something to go by as there is too much information on Khufu to give here. Do you want information on himself and his family, on his private lives, on the building of the Great Pyramid, or on something else?

If you let us know specifically what it is you would like information on, then we may be able to help you a little bit more. Otherwise it's like asking someone who knows nothing about quantum physics to explain the theory of Schrodingers cat - all you'll get is talk about kittens which isn't relevant.

He was a king of the 4th Dynasty, Old Kingdom, circa 2589 - 2566 BC. Very little is known about him but his reign probably lasted 23 years.
There is only one known portrait of him to have survived, a tiny ivory figurine, of the king enthroned and this was found at Abydos. His memory appears to have been execrated by later generation, although there was a cult to his memory that continued for at least a thousand years after his death.

Khufu ('protected by Khnum'). Also known as Cheops/Kheops (Greek), Suphis I (Manetho).
Father = Snefru
Mother = Hetep-heresI
Wives:
Unknown Queen, Meritates, Henetsun, and Unknown Queen
Sons:
Djedefre, Kawab, Khafre (Chepren), Djeefhor, Banefre, and Khufukaef
Daughters:
Hetep-heres II, Meresankh II, and Khamerernebty I
Burial = supposedly the Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau
