+ Pair up your students to have them work together to gather information from notes, texts, and other resources you provide. I like to have students work together to gather information and then complete their own project.

+ This resource provides templates for students and makes the task fun and easy for them, while proving to be fully comprehensive. The included rubric will help you grade with ease.

+ Ancient history doesn't have to be overwhelming. Read more about how I use this project with my students and how I teach with a 7 part structure on my blog: TeachLikeMidgley .com


+ Use this comprehensive project as a way to help your students learn information in a new way, review their unit, or to assess their understanding.

+ When you use this resource, you can teach with confidence that you are covering all the essential and foundational information your students need to know about the objective.


+ I wanted to provide structure and support for my students. For this project, students work with partners for the challenging part of gathering and organizing information. But the templates are the perfect level of support for students to create their own product.

+ Use this resource to teach the five main concepts of your prehistory unit: how we learn about the past, early hominids, the Paleolithic Era, the Neolithic Era and first settlements. Providing your students will a framework will help you streamline your teaching and make learning easier for students.
