Old World History

Study for chapter 3 test on Wednesday, Sept. 29. Use the Chapter 3 Checkup to study. Section A and page 322 are the map portions of the test (bonus will come from the students labeling extra places not on the test.) We have been looking up these locations daily together in class. Sections B- E we have either done in class or checked together so the students should have all of the correct answers. Complete the take home quiz. Keep practicing the portion of The Declaration that we are memorizing. It should be highlighted in their book.

Use this weekend to work on your project. We will probably have homework next weekend, so don't wait to begin then.

The students have been assigned an ancient civilization that they will look information up on and complete a project to present to the class on October 12. I did not pass out papers, instead I have added any other information the students need to the list below. The students will create a book or a diorama box to share with the class. I want student made projects, not picture perfect projects.

  • Geography- Where were they located? What is that place called today? Include a map

  • Time Period- When did they become a civilization and when did they fall?

  • Beliefs- What kind of religion or worship did they practice? Were they polytheistic or monotheistic (one god or many)? Was their religion and their government combined?

  • Technology/Contributions- What advancements did they have for their time period... calendar, irrigation, buildings, roads, chariots? Did they have any major contributions to the world at their time or any lasting contributions?

  • Writing/Art/Architecture- What form of communication did they use (pictographs, symbols, alphabet)? What did they write on? Was art important in their civilization?

  • Government- What type of ruler did they have? What type of laws did they have?

  • 3 fun facts

Rubric- 10 points for each part, 10 points for on time, 20 points for book/diorama neatness and creativity
