Today in Humanities we did the following:
Jigsaw of 3 timelines: Classical China, Classical India, Ancient Greece/Rome:
1st activity: (15 mins) Stus copied their section using colorful markers and create an attractive section of the timeline. Pictures were opitional. Once pics were done stus wondered around the room until they found their respective groups and taped their pages together. Tomorrow they will pin them up to the wall.
2nd activity: (30 mins) Stus were given random docs from the Economist, NY Times and NatGeo over current Events regarding India and China. Used doc analysis sheet.

I used this as a template but changed 5d from the "United States" to "Classical China and India"
