Before you start teaching about the ancient world, give your students the pre-test to see what they already know about prehistory and ancient history. Then introduce them to archeology by conducting a “dig” right in your own classroom. Students can use the filled-in and blank charts to help your students learn about 6 time periods in prehistory and ancient history. Then they can use the task cards and puzzles to review what they have learned. When you’ve finished teaching about prehistory, your students can do the final project about important events and concepts in the Paleolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic Ages.

After you’ve completed your unit on prehistory and ancient history, give your students the post-test to see what they learned and compare their results to the pre-test they took prior to beginning the unit. At the end of the year, to review the ancient and world civilizations they learned about, have your students do the persuasive writing activity about which civilization they'd prefer to live in.

This bundle includes step-by-step instructions, suggestions, and materials to differentiate for students at various English language proficiency levels, so you can use these resources with all your students!
