This project allows students to use what they know about the advances in technology of Ancient Mesopotamia. The students are asked to create an advertisement to sell an advance in technology during ancient times. Each advance must be clearly listed at the top of the advertisement, the advance must be explained in full sentences, and the student must explain why it was important in Mesopotamia at the time. The students are asked to use color, to draw or find a picture of the advance, and to develop a creative slogan. Students may use websites or books to research their project. They must also include a list of sources that they use on the back of the project. This project gives students an opportunity to research a topic using the Internet or book sources, to find specific evidence from a text, and to creatively develop an advertisement depicting the importance of the advance. This project takes about two to three days if research is also done in class.
