Today we are going to talk about the rise of city-states in Ancient Greece. Students will then respond by creating their very own Greek City state (Polis). Watch the videos below to understand what a city-state is and how/why they came to be in Ancient Greece.

Today we are discussing the Rosetta Stone: the key to understanding ancient Egypt. Students will decipher codes, watch a fascinating documentary, and begin work on their very own Rosetta Stones that will be written in Cuneiform (the Mesopotamians), hieroglyphics (the ancient Egyptians), and English (us of course).
Today we introduced world history by asking “What is history?”. Students fashioned a personally written response to what they feel history is to them. Then we worked on personal timelines to get oriented with the format.
