This is one of my favorite lesson plans and I start teaching every World History class with this unit. This is a short unit that is a fun and easy way to help your students understand the basics of studying history, prehistory and early man, and the beginnings of civilization.
Included in this unit:
--A lesson plan including detailed descriptions of each activity
--A PowerPoint covering historical tools, prehistory, and the features of civilization, including teacher notes for each slide
--An optional guided notes sheet for students that follows the PowerPoint
--A vocabulary activity, particularly good for English language learners or lower level students, answer key included
--CSI Mohenjo-Daro: a group activity that has students analyze artifacts using knowledge applied from the PowerPoint
--Directions for a poster project on the features of civilizations.
This fun unit is a great way to start your class with some fun activities. This all inclusive unit is easy to teach and easily adaptable for all levels of students.
