Individuals     &Societies
We classified and differentiated the stone age from different  civilizations which enabled us to strengthen our thinking skills. Thereafter we delved into three major civilizations and shared our findings through discussions. To evaluate our learning we recently had our formative assessment which required us to identify any one aspect of our chosen civilization that we would like to emulate in today’s world. Hence we enhanced our thinking, communicating and self-management skills.
