I have students write an informational book about the civilizations . They need to research the characteristics of a civ. For each civilization. I have two versions : my accelerated students compare and contrast two civilizations in their book and other students inform on one civilization. I have also given a group one characteristic and they research that characteristic for all four civilizations and create a book on just thy characteristic. Each group is given a different characteristics I have tons of trade books that help with this project. They have to design and write the book based on their research(cover page, table of contents, each characteristic has a page, bibliography).

My principal makes us use a rubric - Writing Pathways for ALL assignments. (Its a district thing) and its really not compatible. But I can share the project and resources with you!

For China I have my students create comic books for how and why the Qing Dynasty fell. I also like to do mapwork so students can locate these civilizations on present day maps
