Mesopotamians used the water from the Tigris and the Euphrates to irrigate their farmlands. They built a building called a ziggurat that was used for worshiping their gods. The Mesopotamians were the first people to create a written language. The northern part of Mesopotamia had animals such as: deer, sheep, and goats. The farther south you went you would find lions, wildpigs, and oxen.......... to be continued

austin 8harvey said...

one of the things i know about mesopotamia is that they had invented the wheel to help move heavy boulders and other uses such as collecting crops.

another thing is that if you stole or murderd someone you could be punished by death.

mesopotamia had also invented irragation to help there plants grow but it also went wrong because there was salt in the river and that was not good for plants.

also if you broke some ones limb you could become a slave to work on the fields

mesopotamia had also made zigurate
for the connection for hevan and earth and they made it so tall to show it's importants.

mesopotamia had also had suplusn food so they didn't need to grow as much.

Some of the things I know about Mesopotamia are, Mesopotamia means land between two rivers. Also the Mesipotamians figured out how to get water to crops that needed water, by using irrigation, which lead to surplus food. And surplus food lead to social divisons. After they had their social divisions they had a society. They also belived in many gods which is called Polytheism.
The Mesopotamians built a ziggurat, which was their link between Heaven and Earth. But they had a major problem with flooding, which was they didnt know when the floods would come. And then oversalting happened.

Emily 9Anderson said...

1we all know that Mesopotamia is know as the land between the 2 rivers Tigris and Euphrates and they had very fertile grass for farming and so that is how they got social division.
2They farmed with tons of things and when the grass becane so fertile only a few people had to farm nd then gather and then they shared.
3They had built ziggarats to so they could get as close as possible to the heavens but dont get them confused with piramids they have more of a point on the top of them.
The people of mesopotamia used a method called irragation which mean to get water from place to place from like wells and otger rivers and lakes but today we get ours from the water pipes in the ground and ours is cleaner.
4The grass was so fertile in mesopotamia because before the were caveman that lived during the ice age and so when the ice bergs melted the grass was really fertile which made really good farming land.
5The people of mesopotamia either worshiped one or many gods s many of them involves like water wind fire tons of them for everything and worshipig many gods would be called polytheism which seems like a funny word.
6The society was organized with a communtity with rules and taditions.
7back then Summer were more rich and Akkad was not poor but becoming poor.
8war was often between Summer and Akkad becaus eof the land and water.
9They mad e the ziggarats were made of mud bricks.
10simalaraties were farming buisness and customs.

Levi 9McKercher said...

What I know about Mesopotamia. . .

1. Mesopotania was located in the Fertile Cresent (present day Iraq) between the Tigris and Euphraties Rivers.

2. The climate in Mesopotamia is NOT ideal for farming since Summers are long, hot, and dry; May-October NO rain; November-April rain comes as a downpour or a brief sprinkle

3. Since such bad land in the North the farmers move South in 5,000 b.c.

4. The Tigris and Euphraties Rivers provide a great source of fresh water and also overflow often and make land very fertile, but the problem there was there was very little rainfall so they created "irrigation" to help control how much and when the crops were watered.

5. Another problem they had but solved was they had trouble constructing buildings so they cut reeds from marshy areas to buikd huts. And then they used mud and straw to make bricks.

6. Basically there were 2 groups of people, farmers and herders; and things that were farmed were... barley, wheat, miller, dates, onions, garlic, apples, and lettuce; and things that were herded were goats, cattle, and sheep.

7. As farming improved people thrived and population grew; and then new settlers arrived from the West and Northwest part of Mesopotamia.

8. As people arrived Villages turned into City-States... Such as
Uruk
Kish
Lagash
Nippur
Umma
Ur

9. Since surplus food, not everyone needed to farm; so people could do other jobs such as Government, Religious Leader, Artisians, and Craftspeople.

10. The people of Mesopotamia traded to get the goods they lacked such as... copper, stone, and wood; by using boats on the river.

And thats what I know about Mesopotamia!!! byeeeeee

The following items are what I know about Mesopotamia:
1. The Hammurabi Code has 282 laws and means an "eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth". Moses 10 commandment are a much better way to live by.
2. The Lydians invented the first coin, which means we can shop.
3. The Phoenicians invented the moderan alphabet, which is wonderful, so we can spell and enjoy reading today.
4. The Mesopotamia people hunted and gathered food before learning to farm, which led to surplus food to barter for good they needed (copper, wood, stone).
5. The Cuneiform is a way of writing in Mesopotamia time and it started out as a "star" or symbols representing words. It took 12 years to learn.
6. People who wrote down important information were called scribs. This was important in planning the for the future.
7. The Mesopotamia calendar was based on moon and stars, since they used illustrations instead of words.
8. The Mesopotamians built levies and gated ditches to help control flooding. Today, we still use levies to hold back water in the coastal regions (they never knew when a flood would come or not).
9. The Fertile Crescent was named that because the land was fertile and rich. People could farm better crops there.
10. Mesopotamia means the land between two rivers, which was great for irrigation, because they could control how much water the crops would get. Again helping to get surplus food.

I really enjoyed this unit.

"Mesopotamia" means land between the rivers. The punishment in Mesopotamia for stealing something from a person is death. The Mesopotamians built their temples called the ziggurate big so that the priest could be closer to God and to show how important religion was to them. I also know that monotheism means the belief in one God. The Mesopotamians invented the wheel to help them haul crops from one place to another. And that cunieform means wedged shaped writing.
