  • Unit 1: Discovering Cultural Landscapes: In this first unit, students will become social scientists, investigating the physical and cultural landscape of ancient Egypt. Students will learn how geographers, historians and other social scientists put together clues to solve mysteries from the past.  Through the use of primary and secondary sources, students will discover how physical geography is related to the development of a cultural landscape. Also, this unit, launches our year of inquiry. Over the course of the unit, student inquiry skills will be honed as they seek to answer our essential questions; “Why do people study the past?” and “How do we know about the past?” and “What makes a landscape?”
