These virtual classroom backgrounds for Zoom™, Google Meet™, and other platforms that use a 16:9 aspect ratio are a great way to keep your students interested when you’re teaching a unit on Mesopotamia. A total of 125 backgrounds were created from 16 different images. Some of the backgrounds are photographs of places and artifacts, some are a painting, and some are clipart images. Each background has 5 versions; the difference is in the titles and subtitles used and location of the text on the backgrounds. The backgrounds can be used on Zoom and other digital platforms.
