Social Studies Unit - Egypt and Mesopotamia

by Kathryn L. Wall, Ph.D.

Twelve thousand years ago, people first settled in agricultural communities around the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in the area of modern-day Iraq. Later, people also settled around the Nile River in northern Africa. The civilizations of Mesopotamia and Egypt that grew out of those early settlements created powerful empires and rich cultures that still influence our lives today.

In this unit, you'll travel back to ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt and learn about the cultures, governments, and economies of these fascinating civilizations. In your final project, you'll create a web-based tour of these two civilizations or present the findings of an imagined archaeological expedition to ancient sites.

NOTE: The Timeline of Ancient Civilization and Ancient Civilization Timeline Cards are required for this unit.

This package includes free online curriculum access for 18 months.
