Students turned in their Ancient Civilization Vocab assignments, and worked to complete their civilization research in the Ancient Civilization Packet. Student groups then presented their information to the rest of the class.

Don’t forget the map quiz on Friday!

We discussed John Smith and the limitations of primary sources, and some of the issues and problems of Jamestown following its settlement in 1607.

Was John Smith telling the truth when he described his rescue by Pocahontas?  Why do you believe/ not believe his account?  What is “the truth”  anyway? Please comment.

Students turned in the Ancient Civ vocab packet with the first 11 terms completed.  I checked those and returned them before the end of the period.  The entire packet, including the remaining 8 terms will be due on block day this week.

Students then began to work on the Ancient Civ maps in the Ancient Civilization packet.  The maps are to be completed using the included instructions by tomorrow.
