Hello everyone. This week students will be moving from the nomadic societies that we studied last week to the agricultural societies. We will be talking about the earliest civilations and what effect they had on those that came after them.

Last week, students took their first test on hominids. Most did well. Some are still learning to adjust to how to reference and maneuver through Google documents. All tests are open-note and on the computer. We will be going over the first test on Monday and weeding out some of the challeges that students experienced the first two weeks.

Homework: Students will research "earliest civilizations," What comes up in the search? Be prepared to talk about it in class.

Once again, if you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a line at bidellb@nhalv.org.
