Discovery Education's "Journals Through History: From Nomads to Farmers" video is an EXCELLENT way to introduce 4th-7th graders to your unit on Mesopotamia. I have my students study these movie questions for their Mesopotamia Test.
Topics covered in the movie questions include: farming, the meaning of "Mesopotamia," flooding and silt deposits, Tigris & Euphrates Rivers, crops, plow, calendar, cuneiform, wheel, city-states, ziggurats, social structure, mud bricks, women's responsibilities, kings' responsibilities, priests' responsibilities, gods, taxes, etc.
