This worksheet lists several foods that were available in ancient Mesopotamia and asks students to create a menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner using only the available foods.
My goal in creating this worksheet was to get my students to understand that not all foods that are commonly available today were available in ancient Mesopotamia, as many are from the "New World."
I have used this worksheet with my sixth grade students as extra credit they can work on when they finish a test, but it could also be used as a separate assignment.
