This packet and reading is an excellent introduction to a world history class. It is a great activity to start to the school year, helping to introduce students to basic terminology and concepts. It is an excellent starting point in a course since many students are coming in with different background knowledge of history and geography. Geographical concepts such as latitude, longitude, timelines, and Roman numerals are included in this introductory packet. The packet consists of 37 questions. Most are multiple choice. A link to a reading that will assist students if needed, is included.
