The bellwork today was sort of a catch-all for ancient civilizations. Where they are. Where we are. What they were.
We graded it, so it was worth a little more than the typical five points. That also means students can make it up. You can get it by going to the H-Block Assignments page and clicking on "27.2 ancient civs map bellwork," or just click on the link right there - and it will take you straight to it.
We've got a couple more ancient civilizations to cover before we get into governments. Rest assured there will be a test shortly after we get back from break. I'll have a review guide for you all soon. For now, just rest easy.
We spent 2/3 of the class working on and grading the paper. After that, we watched the first part of the Indus River crash course. I would put it up here, but I'm not going to because we're going to finish it tomorrow. You can watch it then. Of course, it's on youtube. So if you want to check it out now, I can't stop you.
As always, thanks for reading and discussing the blog.
If you want the extra credit for reading and discussing it today, click on the link above. Adults, quiz your kid over the bellwork we did today. It should be pretty easy since it was already review, and we just did it in class. If they struggle with it too much, glare at them a little bit for me, ok? That's the type of stuff that will show up on the test.
Then, when you're done. Write down which question was the easiest, and which one was the most difficult. (You don't have to ask every question. But ask at least five.)
Then, as always, have the adult sign the paper and turn it in tomorrow.
