Product Description
This is a great way to engage students with history! The activity is comprised of 12 different squares that should be cut up and given to the students. The students arrange the squares so the facts align with the appropriate classical civilization. This particular cut up activity deals with how the classical civilizations ruled their empires. All of the outside edge pieces are information from empires outside of the classical empires. It is a great way to get students moving while critically and logically thinking.

Steps to use this activity:
1. Print out one sheet per two-three students. (It works best with two students)
2. Cut out each of the 12 squares before giving the activity to the students. I always keep one sheet not cut to check student work.
3. Give each pair of students and a set. Have the students put the 12 squares back into a rectangle. I draw the shape of the rectangle on the board with the interior squares drawn in it so the students know what the shape looks like.
4. Tell the students that each empire matches with a fact about it. There are multiple of the same empire, so they will have to "puzzle" which order they go in.
5. Tell the students that the empires not found in the classical era are the edge pieces. That will help with the corners and the border.
6. If the class moves slowly through the activity, you can write some of the answers on the drawing you made earlier.
