We are halfway through our Early Man and Culture unit. This unit is about man's beginnings and how cultures developed through the environments that humans found themselves in. We have covered the ideas that geography affects the environment and the differences between history and archaeology. Next week we will tackle the beginnings of mankind and the revolutions of tools and farming. Our test is tentatively scheduled for Monday, 9/20, but may be pushed back a day due to this week's busy school schedule. Don't forget that the paleontologist from the Dinosaur museum will be coming on Monday to speak during 1st, 2nd, and 3rd period.
Sometime next week, we will begin our unit on Mesopotamia...after that, Egypt!
