1. Artifact Analysis

1.1. In artifact analysis, we learnt how historians analyze artifacts and some guiding questions and points to help us analyze artifacts.

1.1.1. Process Of Artifact Analysis Origin Origin is about where the artifact is from, and how it came to be. Purpose Purpose is about what is the use for the artifact, and how to use it.

2. Civilization

2.1. In civilization, we learnt about how civilizations were formed and what makes a good civilization.

2.1.1. Good Civilization Agriculture For every civilization to have good nutrition, agriculture needs to be there to provide food. Religion When people used to worship gods, they felt safe knowing that someone is watching over them. Politics A civilization needs a government/ruler to keep their town/city./village organized. Geography Every civilization has a place where it originates, and a place where it ends. Economics Without money, people couldn't make a profit from their job and trade with other people. Society Society means people coming together for something, and a civilization is a group of people living together. River Rivers provide water for agriculture, and also provide water for drinking. Lastly, they make the land near the river fertile.

3. Timeline

3.1. In timelines, we learnt a lot about how we make a timeline and what makes a good timeline.

3.1.1. Timeline Elements Pictures Pictures add detail to the timeline and help the reader visualize what is happening in that event. Dates Dates make the precision of the timeline better as you are giving a specific date for that event to happen/when that event happened. Events When you add events under the date, the reader gets more clarity on what you are talking about. Straight Lines When you add straight and precise lines, then the reader will get more clarity on where in the timeline you are placing that event.

4. Time

4.1. In time, we read three articles on chronology, anachronism, and time maps.

4.1.1. Chronology Chronology is the sequence of events in a period of time.

4.1.2. Anachronism Anachronism is when historians make a mistake and mix up different time periods.

4.1.3. Time Maps Time maps are a way to organize our time and plan our life. A way to do this is through journal entries, calendars, etc.
