Each book provides activities to help students create "museums" full of specially crafted "artifacts" such as masks, jewelry, pottery, mosaics, weapons, and more that highlight the economic, political, scientific, and cultural components on which civilizations are based. Includes reproducible pages for exhibit description cards and invitations to the museum's grand opening. Students share information through oral presentations, guided tours, factual and creative writing, art, map making, and more. Activities are based on current academic content standards. 64 pages each. Author:Diane Sylvester.
