WHAT'S NEW and UPDATED in this resource: I've reformatted the webquest pages so that they can be filled in electronically!!! I've also added an answer key with different possible examples of how info could be filled in (can be edited by the teacher as well to give more ideas or to give less ideas), and last of all I've split up the PDFs so you can give them to students electronically in parts or as one whole doc! The download is now a zipdrive of multiple files.
This packet by Miss Winning's Classroom includes a series of GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS to guide student research and recording of information on the following topics:
• ANCIENT MONEY (including the origins of currency systems)
• How TECHNOLOGICAL ACHIEVEMENTS HELPED IMPROVE TRADE
• RESOURCES, COMMODITIES, AND TRADE PARTNERS – Who traded what, for what, and with whom?
The "Ancient Money" webquest includes 10 different civilizations. Other webquests focus on: Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, Rome, Greece, and India, with options to study other civilizations as well. Students can work on all civilizations at once OR do each separately. They can also work independently or in pairs - your choice or theirs!
It is suggested, but not required, that the students use the 'Mr. Donn' Ancient History website to do some or most of their research - a URL is included right on the student worksheet for the global version of the 'Money' webquest!
SOME OPTIONS are provided FOR DIFFERENTIATION and student and/or teacher choices. The pages are not numbered, which allows you the freedom to give students only the activities/parts/versions you want them to do!
TIP: You can enlarge some pages on your copy machine and print them on larger paper in order to give students more room for writing.
An optional ASSESSMENT TOOL for this assignment can be found here in my store:
General or Universal Assessment Rubric for Any Assignment or Activity
