This is the first part of a 5 part project or can be used as a stand alone project. Part I is entitled "My Civilization is the Best!" and is designed to encourage student growth through analysis and evidence based arguments. Each student will research the Four River Civilizations and then create a new civilization based on what they believe is the best parts of each River Civilization Students will then present their civilization to the class and the class will vote on which civilization is the best. A rubric is included with this activity.
I have uploaded the document as a word document so the project can be more easily adopted to your classroom.
