Grade 4-6-Divided into two sections, this book provides brief background information on these two ancient civilizations, followed by a number of projects in several categories that include eating, the arts, and dressing up. The activities vary in type, difficulty, and actual relationship to the culture they represent. Overly simplified black-and-white line drawings illustrate the texts. While this title offers a few new ideas, the "Civilization Project Books" and "Craft Topics" series (both Watts), which have full-color illustrations, clear instructions, and step-by-step examples, are better choices.Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
