This task is a wonderful research opportunity for your students to exhibit their learning of a particular early society.
Students will work on "inquiry questions" each week. This task can be done at home and at school - totally up to you and your student's abilities and access to technology.
Depending on your students, this resource can be easily differentiated for your learners. Some questions include multi-layered questions/parts that your high achievers can work on. At the same time, students can answer 1 part of the question depending on their ability.
Inquiry Question #1
What is your early society?
Where did people live?
What modern countries are apart of this region now?
Find a map of where your Early Society was.
What physical features were there according to the map?
Draw a map of the modern country today where the early society used to be.
At the end of the research time, students will present their early society.
Description from the resource:
We are going to have an Early Societies Fair. You are going to inform other students about your Early Society. Use the information that you have already gathered throughout the course of this unit. Create a poster, pamphlet or a slideshow to display the information that you have gathered. Be prepared to talk about your Early Society and tell other students what you have learned throughout the course of the unit.
Students will use their inquiry questions to help them with the "fair".
Students should answer 4 or 5 inquiry questions to ensure they have gathered enough information to present their early society at the fair.
