The Sumerians-Lesson 7- 3500-2500 B.C.

What is a civilization?
A civilization is born when you have lots of people living near one another who depend on each other to live.
 The Sumerians lived in the " Fertile Crescent"
which is between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in modern day Iraq.
They called this area " Mesopotamia" which means "land between to two rivers."

In the city of Ur, they built ziggurats ( flatten pyramid) for there gods. They worshiped there gods in the temple. We believe in the ONE TRUE GOD.

 The Sumerians puppets
The Sumerians very amazing people.
They had accomplished many things.
After the flood alot of the skills had been lost and The Sumerians brought back things that were lost.
For example:
Flushing toilets
irrigation systems
hot/cold running water

They invented the wheel.
There written language was called " cuneiform"
Above D Man and Ducky made there own "cuneiform tablets.

Abraham was an Sumerians, he came from Sumeria.
He left the city of Ur to seek  the one true God.

 The Sumerians were intelligent people. But we know very little about them, This is the Mystery of History.
