I made this screencast to use in my 6th grade class. The students will have to work on a group project in which they make a slideshow about a characteristic of civilization. They will have to illustrate how their characteristic was represented in ancient Mesopotamia, how it is represented today, and their assessment of that characteristic. I wanted to give them an example of what a good slideshow would look like, and figured I’d add a video with an explanation. Hopefully they will find the screencast useful!
