This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - Mesopotamia. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
A river civilization or river culture is an agricultural nation or civilization situated beside a river. Historically the first great civilizations all grew up in river valleys. The oldest, 3500 to 2000 B.C.E., was Mesopotamia, between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in the Middle East.
Mesopotamia means "between the rivers.” It has also been called “the cradle of civilization.” Mesopotamia is the alluvial plain area between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. The area is a difficult environment for agriculture because there is little rainfall, the rivers flood at the wrong time for grain agriculture, and the rivers change course unpredictably.
The presentation covers the following:
Map of Mesopotamia
Temples & Palaces
Roles in Society
Writing & Numbering
