Product Description
Before you start teaching about the ancient world, give your students this 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. When you’ve finished teaching about prehistory, your students can do this 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.
