Explore Trio of Ancient Civilizations

How Would You Survive? is a CD-ROM that takes students back into the daily lives of some of the most interesting ancient civilizations. Based on the Franklin Watts books, the program highlights the ancient Egyptian, Viking and Aztec cultures; explore one civilization or compare different aspects of the three featured civilizations. The title reveals how the ancient peoples played, what they ate, how they dressed, how they earned a living, what school was like and how they communicated. Each culture includes a "survival guide" containing basic facts, a map and a timeline. At the end of the "journey," there is a game which poses questions about the different cultures.
