Today we started our Ancient Civilizations Salt Dough Maps!
Students traced their maps, made the dough, and formed the dough into the shape of the specific ancient civilization that they chose. We are currently studying about Mesopotamia and the Fertile Crescent, so one group worked on that map. Other groups focused on the Indus River Valley (India), the Nile River Valley (Egypt), and the Yellow River Valley (China).
The salt dough recipe we used:
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 cup of salt
- 1 cup of water (give or take)
