  • Hi my name is John. We are the Sumerians. We live in Southern part of Asia. In modern day we live in mostly Turkey, Iran, and Syria also a little in Iraq.
  • We live by two main rivers the Tigris, and Euphrates.
  • SIR WE HAVE A VERY BIG PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!We have ran out of space for are people to live. WE ARE OVER POPULATING!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • We moved to the Zagros Mountains .
  • OH NO WHERE WILL WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!! Wait I know were we will go. To the plains called Sumer.
  • But we had a plan. We built complex irrigation systems so that the water could make the land wet again. We also built levees to keep the water from flooding.
  • But we had some problems. In the summer the snow in the mountains started to melt. So the river started to flood. and in the summer the water went dry and the field was dry as bone.
  • But we had another problem the irrigation systems keep collecting silt and clogging up. but we had to keep cleaning them out by working together.
  • since we worked together we developed the first cities.
  • But we all had one thing we needed the most and we fought over was water.
  • So that's why we moved to Sumer and how we did things and how we survived. We had to keep advancing in our technology to keep up with other cities and eventually sumer died. But thanks for listening and hope you have a good rest of the day.
