The pages included are:

2. Completed Note Sheets- The completed note sheets are provided as a sample, but they could even be used to distribute to students as an extra resource.

3. Civilization Pie Activity

a. After your instruction on the eight features of civilization, have students brainstorm symbols that could be used to represent each feature. This works really well as a small group activity. Brainstorming sheet is included as well as a sample (completed sheet).

b. Students should select one symbol for each feature to depict on the Slice of Civilization pie. This graphic illustrates that it takes all eight features to make up a whole civilization. Students then label the features and draw/color the symbols on their civilization pies. A blank pie sheets as well as a completed sample are included.

4. Civilization Word Search- Students complete fill in the blank sentences involving the eight features of civilizations. The first letters of each word are provided as clues. They then find the words they used to fill in the blanks in a word search puzzle. An answer key is provided.
