Hunter-Gatherer Societies: Vocabulary Study and Guided Reading Today we are going to be learning about early human hunter-gather societies. We will be mastering key vocabulary using the Cognitive Content Dictionary in your Social Studies folders, as well as doing some guided reading using the text below. The document Hunter-Gatherer Societies - Cognitive Content Dictionary can be found in your Social Studies Google Classroom (and the text can also be accessed on pages 12 and 13 of your Ancient Civilizations textbooks).
Homework Continue working on the Hunter-Gatherer Societies - Cognitive Content Dictionary, which should be completed and 'turned in' by next Friday, August 28.
