ANCESTOR SCAVENGER HUNTANCESTOR SCAVENGER HUNTOVERVIEWWorld History is an incredibly broad subject and we will just scratch the surface of some key historical events, figures, religions, and ideas; however, each of us has ancestors from around the world and this assignment focuses on our relationship to them and our past.This assignment is designed for you to practice research on the web and locate Primary and Secondary Sources. Additionally we are developing several course competencies including acquiring information, breaking multiple sources down into parts, use of library resources, recognizing secondary sources and locating primary sources.Be sure you understand the difference between Primary Sources and Secondary Sources when researching history by visiting the resources page and visiting websites that describe the difference, such as this LibGuide from American University.INSTRUCTIONSStep I: Select the culture of one of your earliest known ancestors. (For example, are you German, African, Japanese, Chinese, Austrian, or Russian?) OR if you prefer, you may select one of the peoples from this module (Egyptian, Mesopotamian, Indian, Chinese).Step II: Search the Module 1 Web Resources pages and the Internet for 10 different sources that relate to the culture term.
