Culture and the Fertile Crescent

posted Nov 26, 2018, 1:38 PM by Warren Wannamaker

This week, students will review the Eight Traits of Culture by completing a post-assessment using a Newsela Text Set. 

We'll then move to the Library Learning Commons on Tuesday, Wednesday, and maybe Thursday. While there, students will learn about appropriate ways to research using databases and books. We'll do so by researching countries located in Southwest Asia and Northern Africa. 

When we return to our class, we'll begin our unit on the Ancient Fertile Crescent by applying the Themes of Geography to the region. We'll identify the Crescent's location, it's major physical features, and the ways that ancient humans interacted with their environment. 

Have a great week!
