To any veterans that stumble across this page, Happy Veteran's Day, and thank you for your service.
We will be studying ancient civilizations a little while longer. I'm debating whether I'll try to finish before Thanksgiving or not. We have yet to talk about Ancient China, but the concepts students have learned about the other civilizations may be enough for now. (Ancient China began by a river for it's silt, irrigation, drinking water, fish, and transportation/trade. They had their own code of laws, specialized workers, cities, and written language... You know...)
Today the students worked on a map, reviewed the Indus River Valley Civilization, and watched a short (2 minute) video on Egypt.
The map was 20 points. If you were absent, you can download it HERE. (It's pretty easy.)
If you want the extra credit for reading and discussing the blog today, define "architecture" and then draw a picture of the most famous piece of architecture for each of the 4 civilizations we've studied. Don't spend more than 1 minute on your drawing.
Have the adult you discussed with sign the paper.
Turn it in tomorrow.
