The Fall of Civilizations- For what reasons have societies collapsed? Unit Test

Unit Test:  This week you will gather evidence on ONE of the civilizations.  Please use the graphic organizer for notes and print out 2 GOOD sources using Citefast.  Attach this to your notes and hand it in next week (Tuesday/Wednesday).

Delivery:  You will have 5 minutes to give a presentation to your GROUP ONLY.  In this presentation think about how you would explain at least 5 factors that led to this civilizations demise.  Be creative with the group (you may draw it, collect artifacts etc).  This will take place Tuesday/Wednesday.  Good luck!

Have you answered this question for your group:  What can the collapse of past societies teach us about the long term consequences of our decisions and actions today?

Note:  Once your unit test is complete I will ask that you post what you presented on your blog.  This will include the answer to the above question that you discovered from your findings.  Any images/pictures that you would like to share.   How did the presentation go?  How did you share your findings?
