Product Description
This is a bundle of two great lesson plans on Mesopotamia. The first lesson plan is a great webquest on Mesopotamia from the following website:
http://mesopotamia.mrdonn.org/index.html

The same website is used for the second lesson plan. Students will take notes on Mesopotamia while pretending to be an Egyptian merchant. Students will write a five paragraph essay about Mesopotamia. This is a great bundle, please check out my other lesson plans and read what other teachers have said about them.

Lesson 1

This webquest on Mesopotamia has 28 questions. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. Students will answer questions from the following great website.

http://mesopotamia.mrdonn.org/index.html

Depending on the grade level, this activity will take one to two class periods. This great activity can be used to introduce or further enhance your students' knowledge of people and history of Mesopotamia.

Lesson 2

This activity is designed to allow students to write a five paragraph essay about Mesopotamia in a fun and creative way. Students will use the following website to gather information about Mesopotamia.

http://mesopotamia.mrdonn.org/

This website is very student friendly. The student handout will guide students through the five paragraph essay format. Each paragraph will focus on a different topic such as:

Daily Life
Geography
Government
Writing
Agriculture and Trade
Religion
Babylon

The assignment uses creative writing by allowing the students to take the role of a Egyptian merchant writing a report for the Pharaoh of Egypt. A grading rubric is included for the teacher.
