This Early River Valley freebie contains the slides from the first chapter (Mesopotamia) of my larger unit on Early River Valley Civilizations. It also includes the cloze passages and answer keys that accompany those particular slides.
The full unit contains a super-deluxe, dynamic 58 slide PowerPoint as well as: 30 bingo cards, 54 flash cards, 11 graphic organizers, 11 blank graphic organizers (for guided note-taking), an extensive color-coded vocabulary list (accompanied by 6 vocabulary quizzes) and a 25 question unit test. There are also 3 word search puzzles, 6 crossword puzzles, and daily review questions (that can be used as daily activators) that accompany the PowerPoint.
There are also cloze passages accompanying every slide on the Power point and lesson review questions filled with essay questions. All of the resources follow the sequencing of the power point making this product practical and easy to use. There are enough resources to keep your students busy for 1-2 months!
This exciting unit takes students from the birth of Mesopotamia (the earliest civilization) to the decline of each civilization. The Power Point is filled with exciting pictures, engaging photographs, and interesting maps. The teacher notes are so detailed and extensive that the River Valley Civilizations PowerPoint can be used like a textbook!
Numerous Common Core Standards are addressed throughout. Everything that you need (including answer keys) to teach about the Earliest River Valley Civilizations is provided!
