History, Archaeology, and the Stone Ages

The students did really well on their Geography Unit tests overall. We have begun our study of history, archaeology, and early man this week. We will spend the next couple of weeks learning how historians and archaeologists work, and some of the early parts of human history. There will be a short assessment at the end of this unit, but it will be open book, so we will not pretest on this topic. I have added links to the Resources list that may assist students in learning more at home.

I am getting here a little behind the times this unit. Usually, I update this at the beginning of a unit, highlighting new links in the resources bar, and letting you know what chapter in the book we are using as a resource.
For our Geography unit, we have not used the book very much, because much of the information is scattered. You can look at pages H14-15, H18-21, and Chapter 1, Section 2 pages 12-17. Also, if you want to see examples of the 2 main kinds of maps, check the atlas, pages R4-5. All of this is available online, go to the World History Book Login link at the top of the Online Resources list, and use the Username and Password I've provided in the top right corner of this blog page.  I am also moving up some links to geographical websites - some with games, some with cool information! Study hard for the test this Friday - I know you'll all do great!
