DIAGNOSTIC EVALUATION

Answer during class in your Social Studies assigment: LET´S UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY and USING THIS TIME LINE WRITE INTERESTING INFORMATION YOU MUST KNOW. Time Early civilizations first developed in Mesopotamia over six thousand years ago. Some of the first cities were established, a writing system was developed, empires were created and monumental buildings were constructed. As each new group of people moved into the region, or took control of the government, they adopted some of the culture, traditions and beliefs of the people who had come before them. Therefore, certain aspects of civilization in Mesopotamia remained the same, and some changed over time. Much of Mesopotamian history lay buried beneath the sand and soil for thousands of years. However, there were clues, such as the mounds known as 'tells', and the ruins of ziggurats, that treasures lay below the surface. In the past two hundred years, people have begun to excavate objects and buildings which reveal the ancient history of this region.

READ, ANALYZE AND SUMARIZE THE FOLLOWING TEXT.

The Fertile Crescent: You may read on the web that ancient Mesopotamia is nicknamed "The Fertile Crescent". It is true that ancient Mesopotamia is located inside the geographic region referred to as The Fertile Crescent. Today, The Fertile Crescent includes the countries of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus, Jordan, Palestine, Kuwait, the Sinai Peninsula, and Northern Mesopotamia. It is a big place. The Land Between Two Rivers: Ancient Mesopotamia was located in a piece of The Fertile Crescent, in what is now southern Iraq. It covered an area about 300 miles long and about 150 miles wide

What does MESOPOTAMIA mean? ___________________________ ___________________________ ___________________________ ____________ What are the countries located in MESOPOTAMIA today? ___________________________ ___________________________ __________________________ What are the rivers that border MESOPOTAMIA? ___________________________ ___________________________ ___________________________ ___________________________ __________


PLAN DE CLASES ASIGNACIONES . The word Mesopotamia actually means (in Greek) “the land between the rivers.” The two rivers referred to by the ancient Greeks are the Tigris and the Euphrates Rivers. Why would anyone wish to build a civilization in the middle of the desert in what is now lower Iraq? Because it was a great place to live! In Northern Mesopotamia, the land is fertile. There is seasonal rain. The rivers and streams are fed from the hills and mountains of the region. In Southern Mesopotamia, the land is mostly flat and barren. Temperatures can rise over 110 degrees Fahrenheit. There is very little rainfall. Storms do blow in from the Persian Gulf, which cools things off. The area does have slight seasons. It can get quite cool at certain times of the year. Many thousands of years ago, early settlers wandered into the land between two rivers. Natural vegetation and wildlife kept the people well fed. The rivers provided fresh drinking water, and a place to bathe. These early people settled down, invented a system of irrigation, and began to farm the land.

WORKSHOP #1 READ THE FOLLOWING STORY AND FIND YOUR CONCLUSIONS ABOUT THE FIRST PEOPLE IN MESOPOTAMIA

Early Pioneers: One day, a group of early settlers wandered into the land between two rivers. No one knows for sure, but there may have been a small band of people already living in the area. If so, the settlers quickly took over. They were real pioneers. They built permanent homes of sun-dried bricks made of mud and straw, and started a new life in the southern region of ancient Mesopotamia. The people who settled down and began to develop a civilization, in the land between two rivers, are known as the Sumerians. The Sumerian civilization probably began around 5000 BCE. In the beginning, they were an agricultural community. They grew crops and stored food for times of need. 1. 2. 3. 4.

SO, When did begin Sumerian civilization? What actions did they use to do? Why were the Tigris and Euphrates rivers important for Sumerian civilization? What kind of permanent homes did Sumerians build?
