Ladies and Gentleman, I would like to introduce to you, the first 10 inductees into the Ancient Civilization Hall of Fame. The results are both interesting and enlightening. We are going to look at what made it into the Hall of Fame and also who/what did not make it into the Hall of Fame.
Task #1: Look through the Prezi to discover what/who made it into the Hall of Fame. Write down the Hall of Fame members on the back of your Hall of Fame Book.
Task #2: Look through the results link by clicking HERE. Read through the entire list of the results. After looking at the results, I want you to analyze the results by posting a comment telling me what you find interesting about the results. In other words, ask yourself, "What do I think is interesting about the results?" (things such as: who/what didn't make it, certain things getting more votes than others, things getting no votes, things you don't agree with, members of the hall of fame that you don't agree with, things you feel should be higher in the list, etc.) You need to find something you think is interesting about the results, and blog about it.

2. Impact on our world today
3. Something that is in more than one ancient world we've learned about
4. How much time we spent studying it
5. Whether it is needed or not by that ancient world

Finally, what do you think should be in the Hall of Fame? Post a comment to get us thinking about what should get selected. This is your chance to persuade "voters" to vote for the ones you think should be in the Hall of Fame, so tell me WHY it should be in.
