A rock song about Mesopotamia to the tune of "Iron Man" by the band Black Sabbath. Most students are familiar with the song because it was featured in the blockbuster movie Iron Man. The worksheets include full lyrics, lyrics with a cloze activity, and worksheets broken down by verses and chorus so the students can focus on specific words to annotate. The music video uploaded to YouTube (I Am Sumerian by Mr. Noomin) contains numerous pictures related to the civilizations of Sumer and Mesopotamia. It's fun for kids and adults too!

An additional video is available with only lyric cues so the students can sing along from memory but get a little help at the beginning of each line.
