Homework: BOOKWORK FOR MESOPOTAMIA. Deadline to turn in assignments Unit 1, 4, 5, and 6 is Saturday October 31st by 6:00 p.m.
Homework was given to all students on October 22nd and 23rd, or whenever you had me as a class. The Unit 1 lessons are 4, 5 and 6 in your social studies book. If you have not done so, please make sure that you get a hard coping of our 6th grade social studies book from the high school's library. Parents do not have to get this book, students are able to do this themselves.
The homework assignment is exactly the same as your first homework assignment pertaining to Ancient Man lessons 1, 2 and 3. Remember that this homework assignment is created to make you read, and explain what you read in your own words.
1. The Vocabulary in the Worksheet is filled out in your own words. In your social studies book "History Alive The Ancient World", read the definition of
each vocabulary word, then on the worksheet, in your own words, give me your definition of what you read.
2. The rest of the worksheets is reading each paragraph, and in the box under the paragraphs where is says "Answer," you give me a one sentence
description of what you read. The Question for all of the paragraphs is "What did you Read?"
3. Remember when you are done, YOU MUST TRUN IT IN to get credit. If you do not there will be no credit given.
4. Students who do not correctly turn in your assignments will get an email form me telling you I did not receive the work.
