About This Product

Immerse students in Mesopotamian history and culture with this expansive cross-curricular teaching kit. Through vivid visuals, interactive activities and multi-sensory projects, core knowledge comes alive on topics like cuneiform, Code of Hammurabi, city-states, innovations and daily living.

Begin by introducing key figures, places and artifacts using illustrated posters and word banks. Then, extend comprehension through mapping tasks, timelines and coloring pages. Discover critical innovations in writing, agriculture and infrastructure by reading leveled articles. Watch recommended documentary clips and recreate cultural elements like ziggurats, carved reliefs and steered carts.

Assess retention with a Jeopardy-style review game covering everything from barley cultivation to the legendary Epic of Gilgamesh. This comprehensive package contains teacher guides aligning materials to social studies standards, plus adaptations for learners of all abilities.

Weave modules into existing ancient civilization units or facilitate an entire stand-alone Mesopotamia study. Writing prompts allow students to connect learnings to their own lives across narrative, informative and persuasive genres. Through varied activities tapping visual, auditory and kinesthetic pathways, your classroom unearths the remarkable history buried between the Tigris and Euphrates. Rediscover the "cradle of civilization" where so much of human enterprise began!
