  • Afterlife Pamphlet

I Can:

  • Explain Mesopotamian beliefs about the afterlife.

Day in Review:

 

Students were given time to work on their Mesopotamian Afterlife Pamphlet project.  This was due today, however some students were not able to get everything they needed done, so the deadline was extended.  As long as it is turned in before break, it will not be considered late.


Assignments and Resources:

Students received a reading about Mesopotamian beliefs about the afterlife. They were instructed to read the entire document, but to create their pamphlet they need to focus on the sections “Human Nature & Fate After Death” and “The Relationship Between The Dead & The Living.” After reading and taking notes student then began to create a pamphlet that explains the beliefs of the Mesopotamian after death, as well as the expectations for how the family would tend to their needs after death. The pamphlet will be due next Wednesday, 12/21.
