In this complete lesson, students analyze images and maps of Mesopotamia and the Middle East, read an included excerpt from "Mesopotamia: The Land of Two Rivers" and answer reading questions. Then they complete a chart organizer synthesizing their knowledge of the geographic features of ancient Mesopotamia and their resulting impacts on its development. Students especially come to understand the unique significance of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers on the area. All teacher answer keys are included. The lesson culminates in a student debate or writing activity.
This lesson also works as an excellent substitute plan.
