Studying the Distant Past (Day 2)

Video: What is Archaeology?  Let's learn more about the job of an archaeologist by watching the short video below.  

Guided Reading: Studying the Distant Past  Today we are going to read excerpts from your text book related to how archaeologists study the origins of humankind. As we read together and in small groups, I would like you to recognize the text features that the textbook utilizes to organize information and help you find what you need. Notice, for example, how the textbook uses boldface blue type to point out new words, as well as larger type to show titles. Additionally, special information appears alongside the main text.  

Timeline Activity  A timeline is a diagram that shows how dates and events relate to each other. Timelines show the order in which events took place. A timeline activity related to early human events has been placed in your Social Studies folders. Study the timeline and then answer the questions that follow. If your Social Studies folder and/or assignment is not showing up in your Drive, you can find a copy of the assignment here. Make a copy and than share the assignment back with me. This assignment is due tomorrow, Friday, August 22

Homework  Please complete your Social Studies assignments from the week, which includes the 'Studying the Distant Past- CCD', the 'Timeline' assignment, and your slide for the Google Presentation. I will begin grading these assignments and entering scores into the Gradebook tomorrow, Friday, August 22.
