Mr. Wannamaker's classes began their new unit today. This unit focuses on the cultures and civilizations of the Fertile Crescent. To learn about these civilizations, we'll spend time identifying the Eight Traits of Culture and will then apply what we know about these traits to the cultures of the Fertile Crescent. 

To begin this unit, we identified the Eight Traits of Culture on a chart. We then spent time looking at how geography affected the Fertile Crescent. While discussing these effects, we completed a graphic organizer to highlight the key benefits and problems related to the geography of the region. 

Have a great evening!
