In this zip file you'll get three different options to help you provide your students with a clear and concise introduction to the 7 Elements of Civilization. The assignments focus on learning the elements of civilization that were developed in Sumer and finding comparisons in the U.S.
The zip file includes...
1) PowerPoint (23 slides) providing an overview of all 7 elements of civilization and evidence/examples from both Sumer and the U.S.
2) Student Notes: Graphic organizers where students will define each of the 7 elements and draw examples from both Sumer and the U.S. There are three different organizers so that you can choose the assignment that works best for you:
--Lecture Notes using the PPT
--Online research project where the students find a credible source and fill in the information
--Ch 5 Textbook Notes for History Alive! The Ancient World
I've included both Excel and PDF files of all three so that you can make adjustments to fit your class.
3) Teacher Answer Key
--Handwritten version to provide examples of drawn pictures
--Digital version with pictures from the PPT
