This resource includes a 37-page detailed teacher reference report on Ancient Sumeria. The report includes dozens of photographs and a table of contents for ease of use.
The 55 trivia cards that are included are professionally presented with a corresponding photograph and a summarized answer to the questions that the report answers. The question cards can be used in group activities, individual trivia games, or as a means to test whether the children remember the answers to the questions. My kids love them. I cut them out and laminated them on coloured cardstock.
