Product Description
This is a 2-4 week educational game designed to teach kids about Mesopotamia. Students are divided into city-states and battle and ally with each other, while dice, "Fate of the gods" cards, and plain old strategy determine their success. Along the way they use "wheat" as money to invest in soldiers or Mesopotamian technologies like the wheel and writing. I've been using this for two years and it's been immensely successful. The students are engaged and learn a lot, and since I, as the Sumerian "Sun God," can take away or give wheat for behavior, class management is a cinch. Setup takes about 1-2 hours and then you're good for up to a month. I do this with my 6th graders, but I can see almost any age enjoying it. This file includes all game cards, game rules, teacher notes/directions, and a "tally sheet" for each group's "scribe" to keep track of money and technology.
