Below are lesson plans for this unit, resources for these lesson plans can be found on the Resources page. Please note: these lesson plans are not mine, links for the websites where I found them can be found on the Works Cited page.
Also, note that in lessons there is mention of Museum Groups as well as Learning Logs. Museum Groups refer to the student groups - students will have the same throughout the entire unit, as they will be researching their findings on a specific civilization and then presenting their findings at the end of the unit. Learning Logs are where students keep all the information and work they have done on their civilization (generally a duotang).
