Characters from the rise of civilizations: Egypt, Mesopotamia, Japan, and more!

The study of ancient history takes students on a time-traveling journey thousands and even millions of years ago! Students become history detectives as they learn about how the earliest humans evolved and then created the world’s first great civilizations. Scientists have learned that the first humans came from Africa over 4 million years ago and eventually migrated to the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The world’s first civilizations created language, art, architecture, and forms of government. The advancements made in the ancient world continue to influence our societies today.


Studying ancient civilizations is a great way for students to understand why and how things came to be. These civilizations brought incredible innovations, scientific achievements, political growth, and literature that is still studied today. Within each lesson plan there are a variety of resources to help students illustrate what they have learned.
