This unit is perfect as a stand alone introduction to Ancient River Valleys and Classical Civilizations, or in conjunction with other short units. The first three lessons can be used to complement lessons on Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, or Harappa and Mohenjo Daro. The last three can be used to complement lessons on Greece, Rome, or the Gupta and Maurya civilizations. In addition, the details of the collapse of the Han Dynasty (not included in this package) can be effectively contrasted with the details of the collapse of the Roman Empire.
