Product Description
This is a bundle of 3 highly animated, power point presentations on the Ancient Civilizations - Ancient Middle East. There are a total of 71 slides in the three power point presentations, all of which are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to. I am only charging for two of the power point presentations. The Indus Valley presentation is free.

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.”

The land of Egypt is defined by the Nile River, the narrow green strip of land on either side of its banks, and the fertile Nile delta area. The rest of the country is barren desert, the unfriendly “Red Land” that contrasted with the “Black Land,” which was home to the vast majority of the Egyptian population. Egypt was traditionally divided into two areas: Upper Egypt, along the southern part of the Nile as far south as the First Cataract, and Lower Egypt, the northern delta area. The climate was good for agriculture, but with little or no rainfall, farmers had to depend on the river for irrigation.

The central part of the Indus Valley area is the Sind region of modern Pakistan. The Indus carries a lot of silt and floods regularly twice a year. Access to river water for irrigation allowed farmers in the Indus Valley and related areas to produce two crops a year despite the region’s sparse rainfall.

Power point presentation #1, Ancient Civilizations - The First River Valley Civilizations contains 40 slides and summarizes the Mesopotamian Civilization, The Egyptian Civilization and the Indus Valley Civilizations.

Power point presentation #2, Ancient Civilizations - The Origins of Agriculture contains 21 slides and covers the following:

The Neolithic Revolution, sometimes called the Agricultural Revolution, was the wide-scale transition of many human cultures from a lifestyle of hunting and gathering to one of agriculture and settlement, allowing the ability to support an increasingly large population.

The domestication of various types of plants and animals evolved in separate locations worldwide, around 12,000 years ago. It was the world's first historically verifiable revolution in agriculture. Because cultivation of plants requires more labor than hunting and gathering, we can assume that Stone Age humans gave up their former ways of life reluctantly and slowly.

Between about 8000 and 3500 BC, increasing numbers of humans shifted to dependence on cultivated crops and domesticated animals for their subsistence. By 7000 BC, tools and skills had advanced to the point that it could support towns with over 1,000 people, such as Jericho in the Jordan River Valley. By 3500 BC, agricultural people in the Middle East could support sufficient numbers of non-cultivating workers to give rise to the first civilizations.

The presentation covers the following:
