Instructions and Q's/Answers for Chp. 4 Foldable

As I explained to you in class today you must now neatly record the important information from Chp. 4, Sec. 1 and 2 into your foldable - vocabulary and Q's/Answers from Sec. 1 and 2. You need to record the vocabulary/definitions for Sec. 1 and 2 on one flap. This is easy because the Sec. 1 and 2 vocabulary are only "subcontinent" and "citadel."

You also need to write the questions and answers for section 1 and 2 on the same square. We didn't talk about this in class, but I decided that it is the best way to get all of the information for Chp. 4. Use the extra space you will have on the vocab flap for section 1 & 2 since you only have to define two words. If you are having a difficult time understanding these instructions know that I am looking for vocab to be defined, Q's and answers to be complete, and for it all to be done neatly.

Last, on the very back you need to draw something that connects to Sec. 1 and
Sec. 2. Use colors if you have colors, and do the best job you can. I know that not all of you feel strongly about art, but know that I am just asking you to try your best.
