This year we will take a drive through Ancient History, stopping along the way to visit Early Settlers, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Each unit will have a project, for example we will hold the Olympics while learning about Greece, but we will also be working on projects separate from the material learned in class.
1.) Country Report:
Each student will choose a country from a list I provide that they want to study for 4 weeks. They will then create a detailed map of the country and write an argumentative essay stating why their country is the ‘best’. Once the country reports are complete we will have a potluck sharing delicacies from every country.
2.) Current Event:
Students will have a summary of a current event due each month. Every student will be responsible for presenting their current event once throughout the year.
