I used this in my 6th grade Social Studies classroom as the first unit of study. We use the GRAPES framework (G - Geography, R - Religion, A - Achievements, P - Politics, E - Economics, S - Social Structure) to study every ancient civilization, and this was a streamlined way for students to access the material, practice it, and have it all written down to refer to over and over again throughout the rest of the school year.
I use the slideshow to guide the notes, give examples, and direct students in learning what each letter of GRAPES is.
Also included is a link to the graphic organizer that students filled in, along with doing activities for each letter of GRAPES to familiarize themselves with GRAPES.
