Description

Overview:
In the computer-based Ancient Civilizations activity, students create their own civilization and see how it fares over the years based on choices they make for location, animals, plants and materials. Students trade resources between their civilizations, repeatedly go to war with unnamed enemies, and learn some fun facts about real-world ancient civilizations along the way. This activity was inspired by Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond.

Very addictive game. Lots of fun, but requires strategy and general understanding of not putting all of your eggs into one basket! Great activity for ending the year or even to fill in between units. The activity does include a worksheet to help students evaluate what they have learned, reasoning why they made particular decisions, etc.
