Unit 7 Mesopotamia
In this unit, students will learn the definition of a civilization, what components are necessary for a successful civilization, and compare this to our lives today. Students will analyze the first river valley civilizations and their relationship to success and location. They will consider how geography both helps and hinders development.
This unit is filled with very important information that will serve as a foundation for the rest of the year. Please work with your child on the vocabulary words for this unit, as they are critical to their success for the remainder of the year. Also, be on the look out for a personalized learning web pathway due at the end of the unit. Students will be provided some time in class, but will have a due date and will need to complete some of their work at home if necessary.
