After students learn about the geography, natural resources and/or economy of Mesopotamia, it can be helpful for them to see everything together on one map. In this activity, students will create a map that displays physical features, where natural resources are found, and what economies are found in different parts of the region. Students will also make a key to reference and add descriptions to explain the images they've chosen.
