This dynamic presentation on Sargon provides visuals, video links, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson. Discover the life of the first emperor in history!

Sargon the Great is credited with creating the world's first empire - multicultural and centrally controlled. What we know about him is limited and is interwoven with legends and myths as later civilizations of Mesopotamians, including the Babylonians and Assyrians, glorified and revered him.

Topics covered in this presentation include:

♦ Archaeological Discovery of Sargon

♦ His Birth Legend

♦ Rise to Power

♦Expansion of His Empire

♦ Warfare During His Era

♦ The Importance of Trade

♦ Administrative Reforms

♦ Enheduanna - Daughter of Sargon, High Priestess, Poet

♦ Sargon's Legacy

Two variations of this lesson!

The first is a PowerPoint for those teachers who know the material and want to guide their students through the material. This class takes approximately 60-minutes. There are three links to Youtube in the presentation. The videos total ~7 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary. There are handouts for note taking along with reflection questions included with this presentation.

The second version consists of the information and images on worksheets that the students can read through at their own pace. This is best done if laptops or tablets are available for the class or for online learning. This version comes with more indepth questions that the students can work through at their own pace.
