History Update:

September we started our journey of the Ancient Worlds! We began in Africa studying Paleolithic and Neolithic periods. We analyzed how they made advancement over time. We learned that agriculture was the biggest reason people began to settle. This week we are finishing up our Mesopotamia unit. It is a river valley known as the Fertile Crescent and we have learned that this has made it a perfect place to settle. They were able to make improvements to agriculture like improving irrigation and even inventing the wheel and plow. Soon your student will be able to tell you all about Egypt learning about its geography, culture, government and economy.
