I played the video about Point of View (see last Thursday for the video) and then reminded students about what we talked about with PERSPECTIVE on last Thursday/Friday.
Then, we began to create a chart on SPRITE GAL about Early Humans......if you want you can call this Stone Age SPRITE GAL too.
For example: draw a picture of what Society would look like for our Early Humans (hunter-gatherers) and then write one sentence explaining this.
Here's the page numbers I gave to help you find examples for Early Humans:
Society: Page 52
Political: Chief or Elder or Shaman
Religion, Language, Art: Page 54
Intellectual: Page 59 thru 61
Technology: Page 53
Here's the whole list if you forget,
We reviewed Chapter 1 and Chapter 2, lessons 1 and 2. We took notes on the Agricultural Revolution and completed a Review Worksheet in preparation for the test tomorrow. The big idea with our review was that Hunter Gatherers moved from gathering food to raising food in around 8000 B.C. and lived a much more settled way of life. We compared the lives of Hunter Gatherers and Farmers and students had a little more work to do on the Review Worksheet for homework.
Today, we took our test on everything we've done so far this year. The Unit One test took up most of the period and I'll grade the essays as soon as I can! :)
Thursday/Friday 10/20 & 10/21
Thursday/Friday we are investigating the Agricultural Revolution. Students located much of the Middle East on a map worksheet. We used an Atlas from class to find these places.
Then, the rest of the worksheet draws information from 3 videos that I posted on Edmodo. Students watched the videos and worked in pairs to figure out HOW the Agricultural Revolution happened, WHERE it happened, and the EFFECTS and COMPARISONS with other societies.
