Wow, the class already knows a lot about ancient civilizations! We will use our web to help guide our activities and to make connections between different civilizations. First stop, Ancient Egypt!
Getting excited about our new unit by exploring a variety of texts about different civilizations!
I love when my students make connections about our unit when they are out of the classroom. Thank you to one of the students who made the connection that her library book was an excellent example of how technology has changed over time! We all really enjoyed reading the super cute story, maybe we will read "The Lonely Typewriter" next!
