This 4 page worksheet has students analyze the culture of ancient Sumer through examining some of their important physical artifacts and acting as archaeologists and anthropologists. Students also read a primary source excerpt from the "Epic of Gilgamesh" to analyze Mesopotamian cultural ideas about their religion and environment.
This works great as a complete lesson in class (contains an Aim and a Do Now, along with notes sections), but can also be assigned as an independent worksheet as homework or for a sub plan to review later with the teacher. If you'd like it in Word format for editing, feel free to just send me an email.
The total worksheet and reading with questions is four pages long; a three page complete teacher answer key with notes is an additional three pages.
