Our final unit of inquiry falls under the transdisciplinary theme, "Where we are in place and time." The new central idea is Ancient civilizations have left an impact on the modern world.
We will be looking at how ancient civilizations are connected to our daily life now (historical perspective) and how they have affected different aspects of our life? We will also reflect on how historians use evidence to make connections between ancient and modern civilizations?
To kick off the unit you were transported into a vast, virtual environment (using Minecraft) that simulated exploration of ancient history. You were able to discover areas themed to ancient civilizations, go on quests, meet characters from history, and collaborate to build themed projects from history.
