  27. 27. 5.- Infer Why do you think people settled in the Fertile Crescent. What characteristics made it so special?  Because of the fertility of it’s soil.

  28. 28. 6.- Describe Describe which elements did the Hittites use in battle.  They used better iron weapons, which were stronger than any other at the time. Also, the battle chariot represented a new development in warfare that caused fear in the enemy and was very effective.
  29. 29. 7.- Relate Find the relation between the following terms, according to what we have learned in class, and write a complete paragrapah: Neolithic revolution – agriculture – surplus.  During the Neolithic, there was a revolution in the way humans lived and it was caused by the development of farming. Humans now could produce more than what they could consume, creating a surplus. This caused a population growth, the advent of trade and civilization!
  30. 30. 8.- Understand Using your own words, explain with an example what is Bias; and also state why we must avoid it when we write about history.  If two countries fight a war between each other, journalist or historians from each side will write in a way in which their own country looks more heroic, like a victim or like the “good guys”. It is very important for us to avoid it in order to give a more neutral point of view of history.
