Guided Notes - Formative Group Project Directions:
 You are going to receive a list of 7 objects that you and your team of archeologists found at a site in the Americas. You are to use this list to identify the following features of their civilization:
-
 
How did my civilization communicate? Could they write stories, tell stories or draw pictures?
-
 
How did my civilization worship? Did they have a religion with one God or many Gods? What can we know about it?
-
 
How did my civilization find food? Did they farm? Were they hunter gatherers?
-
 
 Was my civilization warlike or peaceful?
-
 
How old is my civilization?
 
-
 
How large was my civilization?
-
 
 What might have been the name of my civilization? If your list does not help you to answer exactly, make an educated guess. You can choose between three different ways of presenting your finding:  Write 1 typed page (at least 300 words) to describe your civilization. If you run out of things to write about your civilization, you can compare and contrast your civilization to a group that really lived in the Americas (Maya, Aztec, Inca etc.) You will summarize this paper before the class through a 1 minute presentation of findings. Create a 5 minute documentary film. A script must be included. You will present your documentary to the class. Create a 5 minute scholarly presentation. You will deliver this presentation to the class.  An accompanying Power Point or Prezi must be included. My due date is:  ___________________________________________________________________  ___
