White Shirt Production: Fabulous Four


The Fabulous Four of Mesopotamia from Dan Klumper on Vimeo.
Mesopotamia, being the first civilization of the world, had the unique opportunity to invent many things. A lot of "firsts" occurred in Mesopotamia, which you will see in this third White Shirt Production called: "The Fabulous Four." What you will be watching is NOT how the inventions actually came to be, but, it will show you how important each one is. All four inventions of the Fabulous Four are used everyday in our world. For this video, you have 3 tasks. See below.
Task #1: Which of the four inventions do you think is the MOST important in our world?

4larsonj said...

I think the most important would either be writing or the wheel, but i think its the wheel. why i tink its the wheel is because we have to travel to different places and go to work on time. If we didnt have it we would have to walk and we would be late and if we had to travel on a plane but on a plane they have wheels so we would still have to walk and be pooped out.

4Kiley m said...

4ZacharyI said...

I think wheels are the most important of the fabulious four because the wheels are used everywhere, it's used to move cars wagons and all that wich helped transportation and wheels also work as gears like in a swivle chair there's probably a gear in there that allows it to swivel. Wheels also today go into shoes. Those are some of the reasons why I think wheels are the best of the fabulous four and that they are used the most.

I think money is the most important invention for our world because you can't get anything without money.

9RasheedH said...

I think irrigation is the most important one. I think it's the most important one because if we didn't control how much water our crops got they could get old, withered, rotten, and eventually die. How would we survive with out the important essentials we eat?

9Rachel D. said...

I think that the most important thing was the wheel because without it we would not be able to tarvle very far and we would have to walk eveywhere we go.

9Sydney R said...

I think Irrigation because it grows crops and food for it. If I could I would choose all of them, but I think Irrigation is the most important. You could make trees for shade also.

9Jordynn S said...

I think the wheel is most important because without it we would not be able to have transportation. So it would take forever to get to Another state or country. Thats why I think the wheel.

9cadenv said...

I think the writing was the most efective. After all, without writing there would be no books, no numbers, and no letters. Thats why I think writing effected Mesopotamia inventions more.

9rossj said...

I think money is the most important because if everthing today was free we would be running out of stuff and if we run out that means we all perish and what would we eat if there is no food.

9Kayla w said...

I think that irrigation is the most important becouse with out water than we would not have the food that we have today. For example we would not havse corn, wheat, fruit and veggies. thats why i think irrigation is the most important thing that they invented.

9sarah k said...

I think that the irrigation was the most inportant invention out of all of them. The reason why i think would be because the stuff they grow on farms is alot of the stuff we eat every day.

9Eric D said...

I think The Writing would be most important. Becuase being able to talk would be nice. Also its a big leap from grunts and nods to a full fledge language!

9issy d said...

I think irrigation was the most important, because if we didn't have that there wouldn't have weelthy plants and fruits to eat and we would possibly die.

9TylerS said...

My opinion is that the irigation the reason is they would never have gotten all the food. If they didnt get the food they would die and\or never get all the trading profits since they couldnt trade in mespotamia.However they were all important discoveries.

3LoganL said...

Irrigation, because all things need water to survive.
