This is a web search designed to give students historical background knowledge about the Ziggurats and their role in the history of Ancient Mesopotamia. During the search they use a variety of strategies and skills that will prepare them to do research using the internet.
During the internet hunt the students are asked to answer such questions as:
Why were the ziggurats built?
Where were they built?
and many other questions.
This is a great way to increase your students ability to use technology as part of their whole learning experience.
