Tomorrow, students will participate in a short discussion on the differences between culture and civilization. Following this discussion, students will begin to review for the Unit 2 Assessment on Thursday by creating a rap/song/poem about early humans and civilizations. Guidelines will be provided for students to take home. This assignment will be due on Wednesday if students do not complete it in class.
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!
