Empires Wrap Up and Recommendation Creation

posted Feb 1, 2016, 2:17 PM by Warren Wannamaker

Students have a few things going on this week in Social Studies. 

First, students are wrapping up the activity list on the Mauryan and Gupta Empires. Students should have all required activities completed by Wednesday's class. We'll then spend a day reviewing and creating study tools, and we're currently planning for a quiz on the Maurya and Gupta on Thursday. 

Then, we'll start putting together our Recommendations for the Rajah, which is our culminating project for this unit. Students have already been working on learning about the history and civilizations of India. They will then use this knowledge to work with a partner to plan, prepare, and present their recommendations for how an Ancient Indian Emperor could best keep his empire together. We'll discuss and review this project and its requirements much more in-depth in class, and we'll have time to work on it in class, as well. 

Have a great week!
