We have learned about 2 ancient civilizations so far!

For each, we learned about their Geography, Religion, Achievements, Politics (government), Economy, Social structures, and the daily lives of the people.

In groups of four, you will have an opportunity to work and create your own civilization!

Pay close attention to the following directions:

Each group will receive a checklist and two pieces of paper (for the flag and map)

In your notebooks, you will work together to create the civilization by checking off all the requirements from your checklist

Each group will be able to type up each section of their civilization and save it on a flash drive so I can print it out later

By the end of the period, you should turn in the following:
