Best question I’ve ever asked on a test: Of all the civilizations we’ve learned about so far this year, which would you most want to have lived in, and why?
I. picked Egypt: “They have some jars for the mummification. For guts to put in.”
A. chose hominids (early humans) although she doesn’t “want to look like them.”
S. also chose Egypt, though she is interested in the mysteries that archaeologists have yet to solve: “There are a lot of mysteries to unlock from the ancient world. All you need is a book! Wait! All you need is a little…IMAGINATION!”
And my personal favorite: W. picked Egypt, with one caveat: “But the thing I hate about it is the respect they get from the pharaoh. I wouldn’t like to live in a place with a pharaoh. I would like to live with the Sumerians and for only one thing. Respect From Others.”
