Next week we will be wrapping up Unit 2: Earliest Humans and Civilizations. We will be looking at the transition of early humans from nomads into farmers and how this set the stage for complex civilizations to develop. The Unit 2 Assessment will be on Thursday and students will be preparing for this assessment throughout the week.
On Friday, Mrs. Kim Sheahan from Spurlock Museum will be visiting our classroom to introduce Mesopotamian artifacts and cuneiform writing to students. Our next unit will be focusing around the Mesopotamian culture!
