Researching Ancient Civilizations

We have been learning about Ancient civilizations for our I.P.C unit ‘Time Detectives’. The children selected which ancient society they would like to research further from Ancient Egyptians, Romans, Mayan or the Ancient Chinese civilization.

The children used informational text, books and websites to answer their selected questions. Like this:Like...
