A bundle of 6 reading assignments about the ancient civilizations of Africa, the culture, the leaders, and the rise and fall of these kingdoms. Includes a crossword puzzle based on terms from the readings and an assessment based on comparing kingdoms using venn diagrams/charts. A great way to introduce the subject. The reading comes from a really great website, ushistory.org, under their free textbook tab. The information presented is theirs, I made up the questions. This can be done as a web quest assignment using the site. Perfect as a supplement, or as a textbook replacement! Also great as a Sub Assignment. MS Word for easy editing.
