From Sumer to the high gas prices of 2005, this collection of 87 lessons feature engaging text, time lines, maps, pre-reading questions, quizzes, activities, puzzles, and mini-biographies to dramatize critical events and places over the last 7,000 years. Newly introduced words are bolded and defined in the margins for easy vocabulary building, while "critical thinking" boxes throughout the lessons provide a point for students to stop, think, and apply what they've learned. The perfect add-on to a traditional world history course, or may be used as a complete program. A glossary and answer key for the puzzles/assessments are included. Grades 6-9. 204 pages, softcover.
