Standard: Study the Niger River and the relationship of vegetation zones of forest, savannah, and desert to trade in gold, salt, food, and slaves; and the growth of the Ghana and Mali empires.
Aim: The historians of 2017 will be able to read a grade-level text about the Empire of Ghana and extract three or more key points of information.
2. Do Now: Fill in the events on this blank timeline in the correct order and embed it in your history portfolio.
4. You are going to spend time reading these pages on the Gold and Salt trade, the exchange of goods, and the decline of Ghana and extract the important pieces of information. Mr. Sanders will model for you how you and your teammates should use a text like this. You can add the information to your Cornell notes from yesterday or create a Google presentation, whatever works better for you. You will be finishing and turning this work in tomorrow.
5. We will close all our tabs and take an exit ticket. The questions for the exit ticket are directly related to what you read in the text.
6. If you finish early, I want you to go back through yesterday's assignment and make sure you've completed all the tasks. Next, watch the 'Week in Review' for last week and make sure you completed all the to do items.
Homework: Take home your video and picture permission slip and get it signed by your parents.
