'The Story of All of Us' and CNN Student News

Video Excerpt: "The Story of All of Us"  Let's continue to develop our understanding of human migration and early agriculture by watching an excerpt of the program "The Story of All of Us." Take notes on what you observe, learn, and what questions you may have, using the document The Story of All of Us - Video Notes, which can be found in your Social Studies Google Classroom

CNN Student News  As we watch CNN Student News today, identify one news story that you can pinpoint geographically and would like to potentially place on the Current Event layer of your Social Studies Events Map via Google Maps. 

Charlotte, North Carolina; Tulsa, Oklahoma, Pennsylvanianorthern California; and North Yorkshire, UK were all featured in today's segment. If you choose to pin one of these places on your map, consider the important questions: What happened here? Who was involved? When did it happen? How did it happen? Why is it important? You should include a title for the event, a brief summary of what happened, and include an appropriate photo or video. If you need to refer to a transcript of today's broadcast for additional information you can find it here.

Homework  Complete your Early Agriculture - Cognitive Content Dictionary, which is due tomorrow, Friday, September 23
