Welcome, grade 8 students!


Use the pages to the left to navigate this wiki.

Everyone should write down these questions, and attempt to answer as many of them as possible on a piece of paper. Be sure to discuss with your group. A great idea is to look through the wiki and THEN answer the questions. You should spend about one period on each culture.

For each different culture, answer the following questions from the perspective of the group you are studying:
  1. Who are we?
  2. Where do we come from?
  3. How do we manage our way of life?
  4. Where are we going? Or how would our society cope if we were forced to move into a modern 21st century city?
  5. Why is the world the way it is? How do we explain why the world is the way it is?
  6. What is true and what is false? Or what are the truths about our culture? What is false?
