This is a group project that takes a single class period.
The goal will be to help students write a quality historical essay. Every good essay stems from a strong thesis statement. The class will be split into groups and will be responsible for doing some organized fact finding and hypothesizing based on Ancient Civilizations. Students will first stop and think about the “who, what, where, when, and why” that pertains to your topic. Then they will take that information and craft it into a thesis statement with the class.
