From Mesopotamia to Egypt
Mesopotamia Timeline Project Today will be your last class period to work on your timeline about the history of Mesopotamia. Remember to select at least five significant events from Mesopotamia's history, arrange them in chronological order with dates, and include an image and description of its importance with each event. Additional directions can be found with the assignment History of Mesopotamia Timeline, which is located in your Social Studies Google Classroom. Due to Back to School Night, this assignment will now be due on Monday, October 12.
Ancient Egypt Webquest Tomorrow will be our official launch of Ancient Egypt. However, if you have completed your Mesopotamia Timeline and would like to get a head start on Ancient Egypt, you may. We will be working on an Ancient Egypt Webquest, which can be found here. You will be acting as an online Egyptologist, being sent all over the Internet, to gather information about this important and supremely interesting civilization. You will record your findings using the document Ancient Egypt Webquest, which is located in your Social Studies Google Classroom. Good luck and have fun! We will continue working on this assignment tomorrow.
