This activity packet is aligned with the Ontario Grade 4 Social Studies Curriculum. Through this packet students explore early societies and make comparisons between early societies and between early societies and present day Canadian society.
Through this activity packet students explore the key aspects of a few early societies between 3000 BCE and 1500 CE in terms of the societies political and social organization, daily life, and relationships with both the environment and with each other. Students also explore conflict within early societies and contact between early societies.
The early societies and time periods students explore through this unit are:
- Ancient China
- Ancient Egypt
- Ancient Greece
- Ancient Rome
- Ancient Mesopotamia
- Middle Ages
Please note that the activities and readings presented in this packet are meant to supplement your own unit plan/lessons. Although I include some beginning activity lesson plans I do not include an entire unit plant. I do provide you with section instructions for the various parts of this activity packet. The majority of the activities for each civilization are the same.
Also included is a final inquiry project and rubric. Through this activity, students identify a question they have about an early society and they use both computers and book sources to identify an answer to their question.
Please note that by purchasing this packet, it gives you permission to use the activities and posters in one classroom. If you wish to share these activities, please purchase another license at a discounted price. Thank you for your understanding.
