This creative writing assignment goes with Chapter 13 in History Alive: The Ancient World. Students are asked to write a letter in which they are exploring the geographic region of India. They must consider what they know about what topographical features a civilization looks for when choosing a location to settle in and describe the area that they have chosen. Additionally, they must describe the undesirable location and explain why they did not choose that area.
