A01c_Ch.03: Beginnings of Civilization- People and Ideas on the Move 2000 – 250 BCE
Along with class lessons and activities, this assignment will help us address this essential question: How did migration and trade help spread goods and cultural ideas throughout the ancient world?
The topics discussed in this unit will wind and weave through the following historical themes:
INTERACTION WITH ENVIRONMENT
Early peoples often migrated from their lands to find new homes that promised a better life. Once they moved, they had to deal with a new environment.
RELIGION AND ETHICAL SYSTEMS
Three major world religions developed during this time. Hinduism and Buddhism originated in India, while Judaism developed in Southwest Asia.
Traders transported their goods to other parts of the world. Among the early trading peoples were the Phoenicians, who dominated the Mediterranean. Sea traders also traveled between India and Arabia.
