This is an extension project that I created for my lower elementary students. (1st, 2nd, 3rd graders) We examined six civilizations through common needs. (Prehistoric, Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks and Romans, Medieval, Renaissance, Modern) The cover of the album provides space for the student to draw pictures of their own needs. Each civilization has two pages that provide space for drawing and text. The last two pages of the album invite the student to look into the future and imagine what life will be like in AD 2114. I use the Common Needs of People nomenclature cards. As the students complete their albums they are invited to use a large moving box to build a time travel machine.
