J'etudie Posted February 15, 2012 Share Posted February 15, 2012 Next year my oldest will be in 5th grade and we're cycling back to the ancients. Thinking about the importance of water to early civilizations, I had the idea of asking ds to work on a research paper, taking notes on the importance of the Nile in Egypt, the Tigris and Euphrates in the Fertile Crescent, etc. and then putting a paper together near the end of the year and maybe looking for similarities/differences among societies or even moving in to how we use water today (most of the water where we live is piped in from far, far away). I thought he could do his notes and bibliographic info in an Inspiration document that he comes back to with each new civilization we study. Any merit in this idea? Suggestions to make it more reasonable/useful/profitable? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
