EdGamer Lessons: Sharing My Social Studies Lessons


I thought I would start something new on EdGamer. My time has been limited to plan, record, edit, and post my podcast, so I thought I would combine my lesson planning with my website content. My goal is to share my 6th grade social studies (ancient civilization) lessons for this entire year. These lessons are closely connected to my use of the game Civilization IV. I also use MinecraftEdu, tabletop games, and many online games.

Here are the ancient civilization units I teach throughout the year-

  • Introduction to Civilization using Civilization IV
  • Early Human
  • Mesopotamia
  • Egypt
  • China
  • Greece
  • Rome
  • Middle Ages (Europe)

My next post will be my first lesson of the year, Civilization Survivor.
