Do you want centers that you can just tweak for each unit?
One of the ways I used to organize my content was using the acronym GRAPES - Geography, Religion, Art and Architecture, Politics and Government, Economics, and Social Structures
So, you could maybe do:
G - Map center
R - research/coloring/matching of gods/goddesses
A - use playdough or other building materials to recreate famous art/buildings
P - have "scenarios" that students have to make decisions on using the old laws
E - recreate money, trading routes, sample products
S - research families/clothing/traditions - paper dolls with costumes
I'll be really interested to hear other replies and what you end up doing!
