Government and Economy in the Fertile Crescent

posted Nov 17, 2014, 11:55 AM by Warren Wannamaker

This week, students will spend time focusing on the last two Traits of Culture: Government and Economy. To do so, we'll learn about these Traits and some key terms related to them. We'll then identify ways that these Traits can be seen in the Ancient Fertile Crescent. For example, we'll look at how the Babylonian King Hammurabi influenced government, and how the Phoenicians influenced Economics. 

Once these activities are done, we'll write our last two Culture Rankings as part of the Culture Champions Project. We'll also prepare for and take a quiz on Government and Economy. If not the end of this week, those two assessments will be finished early next week!

Have a great week!
