This is a week long project to help students learn about Ancient Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. It is designed to be taught in segments with the students completing a journal through use of class set resources that they gather from different areas.
This activity briefly goes over the Mesopotamian cultures of Sumer, Babylon, and Assyria, the ancient empire of the Hittites, and Ancient Egypt. It uses reading passages and decoding to get the answers.
Includes: student packet, class resources, answer key and grading suggestions, and review questions for exit ticket or wrap-up.
My students had a lot of fun with it, I think yours will too!
