This brand-new study guide
covers the mysterious and fascinating Ancient world, when humankind was
making leaps and bounds as the written word was established, the wheel
invented, and ziggurats and pyramids arose amid societies we usually
think of as rudimentary.
Ninety-eight lessons will take your 5th-8th
grader from the beginnings of civilization in Mesopotamia and Sumer, on
to ancient Egypt, through the wanderings of the Jews and the splitting
of the Israelites into the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, to the cradle
of democracy, ancient Greece, and into the rising Roman Empire and the
birth of Christianity. From the ziggurats of Babylon to the first
Christian churches in England, follow the drama of the human story. Our
study guide provides the structure you want and the flexibility you need
to successfully teach this complex time period.
Each section is built
around engaging and historically accurate literature. Hands-on
activities add depth to the history while vocabulary lists,
comprehension questions, research topics, and web links make this both
an academically strong study and one that will engage your entire family
in stimulating discussions.
