For each of the units I teach in Ancient History, I like to have the students complete a building challenge. They are presented with an invention from that time period and they have to recreate this invention using the supplies I provide. This teaches critical and reflective thinking, teamwork, and provides a deeper connection to the society being studied.
This bundle includes a building challenge for Ancient Egypt (Shaduf), Ancient Greece (Columns), Ancient Rome (Catapult), and Incan Civilization (Grass Bridge)
Each Unit Includes:
• Teacher Instructions and Answer Key
• Student Worksheet with Background Information, Instructions, and Introductory Questions
• Student Reflection Worksheet
• Pre-made Google Docs and MS Word versions of all student worksheets
