Epic of Gilgamesh/Noah's Flood primary source analysis and synthesis activity
This is a project designed for high school World History. It consists of two primary source texts - an excerpt from the Epic of Gilgamesh and an excerpt from the story of Noah's Flood in the Bible - and several reading analysis questions that prompt students to practice reading comprehension, evidence-based inquiry, and synthesizing source materials. It's a nice blend of historical reading and English-language arts skills, it can be done individually or in groups, and makes for an effective 30-minute lesson.
