This project was designed to be completed in 3 weeks, but could be adjusted to to different times. This includes the items to be researched (government, geography, writing, religion, agriculture, time lines, and maps) as well as detailed instructions (with a picture) to construct the book. The rubric is also included. Minor adjustments to the due dates will be needed. Basic instruction on these civilizations should be presented either before or during student research times or use this as a project based assessment in place of a traditional test.
