Make Your Own Treasure Map
It can be hard for your middle-schooler to relate to ancient civilizations. After all, they existed a long time ago, and life was so different then than it is today. One way to pique her interest is by having her make a treasure map of the ancient city of her choosing! This activity turns learning into an adventure as she uses her imagination to create the map. She'll also be learning all about the different features of the land, and she'll fine-tune her researching skills while she's at it!
