This guided inquiry into the Agricultural Revolution features some picture analysis and a long article by Jared Diamond, "The Worst Mistake in the History of the Human Race." The article has been shortened some and adapted more for a middle school audience. It has been broken into smaller sections with reading comprehension and vocabulary analysis questions in between every section.
The questions explore the use of Diamond's arguments and evidence and the article highlights reasons why agriculture may have been a setback for humanity.
