This is a bundle of 3 highly animated, power point presentations on the Ancient Civilizations - Early Humans & Agriculture – Power Point, Vocabulary Exercise and Lesson Plan. One product consists of a highly animated, 27 slide power point presentation on our Human Ancestors, a 34-slide presentation on Early Humans and the Agricultural Revolution - Vocabulary Exercise and a 5-page Lesson Plan on Early Humans and the Agricultural Revolution. There are a total of 66 slides and 5 pages. The power points are highly editable so you can change it or reorder the slides to fit your individual needs.
Power point #1 is entitled, Ancient Civilizations - Early Humans & Agriculture and contains 18 slides and covers the following:
Most historians think the first civilization started between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in Iraq, Southwest Asia of the Middle East. The land between those rivers is called Mesopotamia. Due to the shape of the land, this area is also called Fertile Crescent or Cradle of Civilization. Different civilizations developed in 3 other river valleys in various parts of the world around the same time.
About 3200 BCE, much of the Nile River came under the control of one king and formed the Ancient Egyptian civilization. Around 3000 BCE a civilization developed along the Indus River Valley in Pakistan/India, South Asia. Ancient Chinese Civilization developed along the Yellow River about 2000 BCE. Many civilizations developed after the first 4, but Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, and India were the first 4 early civilizations.

Power point #2 entitled, Ancient Civilizations - Early Humans & Agriculture – Vocabulary Exercise and contains 34 slides and covers the following:
The power point presentation covers 29 vocabulary words on Early Humans. The students are provided a list of the 29 vocabulary words within the presentation. Each vocabulary word is presented on a separate slide and contains the vocabulary word and its common definition.
The assignment for students is to review each of the 29 vocabulary words listed and to understand what they mean and how they became part of our vocabulary today. Sometimes vocabulary reviews can be a little stiff, so I have highly animated each of the 34 slides. They are also editable so you can feel free to adjust these slides as you need to.
Good luck and have fun with the presentation!
