From Geography to Culture

posted Oct 6, 2014, 2:02 PM by Warren Wannamaker

We have a few things to do this week in Social Studies. Students spent Monday finishing up one or two things from the last Activity List. This included a Historical Atlas activity on the New Stone Age, and a video about the movement from the Old Stone Age to the New. 

Starting on Tuesday, students will begin work on our next unit. In this unit, we'll look at the civilizations of the Ancient Fertile Crescent, with a particular focus on Sumer and Egypt. To do so, we'll approach the unit with a focus on the Traits of Culture, which will help students to better understand the cultures of the past. First up are the Social Groups, Daily Life activities, and Languages of the region. 

Students will get their quizzes back as well (if they haven't already). If any students have concerns about their grade, they should talk with Mr. Wannamaker after school at some point this week. 

Have a great week!
