Description

Our Ancient Mesopotamia lesson plan introduces students to the “Cradle of Civilization,” Mesopotamia, and presents an overview of this interesting civilization and era. The lesson begins with the geographical location of Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. The discovery of farming is then discussed, as well as the Sumerians. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, with a partner, to discuss a given list of inventions discovered or invented during Ancient Mesopotamia and how they helped the people of the past and of today and then use their creativity to develop an alternative for each invention or discovery; once finished, they will present their new inventions to the class, strengthening their public speaking skills. Students are also asked to match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe, identify and list characteristics of Ancient Mesopotamia and its impact on future civilizations.

Ancient Mesopotamia Resources

I found the resources to be very helpful. I used them for an assignment I needed to create for a class. I will use Claredon Learning in the future as a teacher.
