Old Civilizations: presentations

During the last weeks the students from 1ºESO have been working in some interesting presentations about the main ancient cultures, these are the different civilizations that took place in  Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome and the different cultures that rose in the Iberian Peninsula.
