part c example a
Part C; Example A
  • Explainhow historians identify a civilization.

Civilizations are complex societies. Historians identify civilizations and separate them from simple societies by using very specific qualifications. Civilizations must have cities and governmentto keep order and provide services for the people. They must also have specialized jobs that help to developadvanced technologies. Religion is present to explain life events and social structure is used to create purpose for people. Lastly, a civilization must have a writing system to keeprecordsfrom grain harvests to taxes. Historians know a group of people met these qualifications by the artifacts left behind.

part c example b
Part C; Example B
  • Describeone of the early river valley civilizations that developed in Africa or Asia.

One early river valley civilization to develop in Africa or Asia was the Nile Valley Civilization, otherwise known as Egypt. Egypt was located in north east Africa along the Nile river. Egypt had a pictograph writing system called hieroglyphics. Theirgovernment was run by a family of rulers called dynasties. The people practiced irrigation to help control the annual flooding of the Nile and help their agriculture. Historians know about Nile valley civilization by the artifacts left behind.

The development of agriculture is described on pages 17-18 of your text book. Some scholars believe that farming was invented by women. Explain the reasons scholars might have for thinking that.

Good Answer: Some scholars believe that farming was invented by women because traditionally women are nurtures. Women have children and then take care of them. This nurturing is useful for farming because plants need to be taken care of in order to grow well and produce food. Also, women had to take care of the home and children. It was more practical to plant grains near the home than to walk long distances to find food.

Bad Answers:

  • They think that cuz women like to plant stuff.
  • Because men hunt and like to kill things.
  • Men do hard work and farming isn’t hard.
  • Explain the culture of most Native Americans.
  • What effect do you think the reconquista had on Spanish exploration of the Americas?
  • Describe slavery in West African society before the Europeans.
  • How did the Columbian Exchange effect the Native Americans?
