You can just print and roll with it in your class without preparation! In this activity your students: observe the factors which led to some cities, states or civilizations fall in antiquity get an opportunity to think and discuss climate change, linking the past and present share their feelings about what they consider as threats to their world (might it be their neighborhood, city, state or planet) get inspired on what they could do to change things Although today climate change has become a much bigger and more globalized problem than in the past, ancient peoples did have to contend with local events that severely disrupted or even ended their way of life as they knew it. This resource examines the Bronze Age Collapse, the fall of the Maya Civilization and other historical events to explore which factors caused them. We have also created a climate change and disaster in antiquity collection containing articles, videos and pictures from Ancient History Encyclopedia which help us understand these dramatic events, their lasting consequences and inspire as many people as possible to make the world a better place.
