ANNOUNCMENT: Quiz will be next Monday on Mesopotamia.

Class began with a practice test from Quizlet for the vocabulary words. After the quiz students discussed the answers and then circled any questions they missed for further study. Following the Do Now students read about Mesopotamian beliefs about the afterlife and then began working on a project to create a pamphlet about Mesopotamian beliefs about the afterlife.


Assignments and Resources:

Students received a reading about Mesopotamian beliefs about the afterlife.
