Product Description
For many years, teaching the five traits of civilizations meant the teacher listing examples on the board and having students memorize definitions. This activity has really revived the content by having students analyze artifacts/artwork connected to the five traits. It has students find the characteristics rather than being spoon-fed the information. Students are required to analyze an artifact from Mesopotamia with the class, completing a chart with their cooperative learning team. You can print out large copies of the artifact and give to each of the groups or project on a powerpoint. Then, students are asked to research their own artifact from another civilization and repeat the process. Teacher key included! Please leave positive feedback if you are happy with my product!
