1 Topic/Theme: History of Eastern Hemisphere Nations Time can be measured in years, decades, centuries, and millennia. Key turning points and events in the histories of Eastern Hemisphere nations can be organized into different historical time periods.

2 Topic/Theme: History of Eastern Hemisphere Nations The Neolithic Revolution was a technological development that radically changed the nature of human society. As the river civilization of the Eastern Hemisphere (Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, and the Indus Valley) turned to agriculture, world populations grew (focus on two of these). Across time, technological innovations have had both positive and negative effects on people, places, and regions. For examples, the invention of writing made more complex civilization and more advanced technologies possible. Civilizations and cultures of the Eastern Hemisphere (China, India, Greece, and Rome) are explored through the arts and sciences, key documents, and other important artifacts. 2,3,5 Stone Age project recreate a stone-age tool Jig saw stations Ancient civ. feasts Video: Secrets of Pharaoh Use internet to research Hieroglyphs and cuneiform and discuss their development Internet quests Comparison charts Learning Centers for Judaism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Christianity doing vocabulary, reading, completing graphic organizer Incorporate vocabulary into posters to describe a religion of Ancient times Create a T-chart comparing Old Stone Age and New Quiz Test/essay Ancient Egypt Project Ancient China Ancient Greece Discussion Observations Create a poster to display important facts of a religion and present to class Religions and other belief systems (animism, ancestor worship, Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam) have both united and divided the peoples of the Eastern Hemispheres.

5 Topic/Theme: Geography of Eastern Hemisphere Nations A region is an area which is tied together for some identifiable reason, such as physical, political, economic, or cultural features. Civilizations developed where geographic conditions were most favorable. Geographic features and climatic conditions in the Eastern Hemisphere influence land use. The geographic diversity of the Eastern Hemisphere has significantly influenced physical mobility and the course of human development. 3,4 Read and discuss topic related books Learning centers Topics will be discussed during History lessons List Geographic features and ways land is used Ancestor interview students will interview grandparent (if possible) List of why people would move to the city Write a letter/journal entry Class discussion or pair and share Your Ticket Out write one thing learned and stick on door Teacher observations Graphic organizers Performance of task/project The migration of groups of people had led to cultural diffusion because people carry their ideas and ways of life with them when they move from one place to another.

7 Topic/Theme: Economies of the Eastern Hemisphere Nations Concepts such as scarcity, supply and demand, markets, opportunity costs, resources, productivity, economic growth, and systems can be used to study the economies and economic systems of the various nations of the Eastern Hemisphere. The three basic economic questions that must be addressed by every society are: What goods and services shall be produced and in what quantities? How shall goods and services be produced? For whom shall goods and services be produced? The ways resources are used impact the economic, political, and historic aspects of life throughout the world. 2,4 Create a Business!

A nation with limited natural resources must interact with other nations to secure its resource needs. Connections to Text: Connections to Technology: websites and webinar 7

8 Topic/Theme: Economies of Eastern Hemisphere Nations In many areas of the world, improvements in life expectancy and health care have contributed to rapid population growth. Throughout the Eastern Hemisphere, there is great diversity in the standard of living. In traditional economies, decision making and problem solving are guided by the past. 2,3,4 Create a list of reasons there might be a population growth Brainstorm a list to solve scarcity issues Create a comparison chart Vocab words Chart discussion [Stock market graph and analysis paragraph comprehension questions.] Teacher observation Quiz In market economies, decisions regarding what is to be produced are based upon patterns of consumer purchases.

As the economic systems of the global community have become more interdependent, decisions made by one nation or region have implications for all regions. Some of the nations of the Eastern Hemisphere play leadership roles in the global economy. Connections to Text: Connections to Technology: webinar and websites 9

10 Topic/Theme: Governments of Eastern Hemisphere Nations Family, clan, and tribal groups act to maintain law and order. As settlement patterns changed, new forms of political order developed to meet the more complex needs of societies. Across time and place, the people of the Eastern Hemisphere have held differing assumptions regarding power, authority, governance, and law. Present systems of government have their origins in the past. Slavery has existed across eras and regions in the Eastern Hemisphere. Political boundaries change over time and place.

The extent to which human rights are protected becomes a key issue in totalitarian societies. In modern political states, formalized governmental structures play a major role in maintaining social order and control. 2,3,5 Videos Research the human rights of a certain ethnic group during World War II (i.e. Navajo Aide Talkers, Japanese American Internment, Tuskegee Airmen, Jews, Black Americans) Research rubric Journal entry Development of classroom rules Role play Teacher observations Discussions Venn diagrams/graphic organizers Citizens of the nations of the Eastern Hemisphere have rights and responsibilities as defined by their constitutions and by other laws of their nations.
