Storyboard Text

  • Hi, I am Chris and I am in Mesopotamia. It is in modern day Iraq. This is the Tigris river one of the two rivers.The other is called Euphrates river.
  • Right now we are leaving the Zagros. Big problems we faced were food shortages and overpopulation so we are moving to Sumer
  • A big problem was the two rivers were FLOODING!But we fixed that by making levees and dams.
  • What happens when silt gets in what will we do then?
  • Let's build an irrigation system
  • Lets just clean the system regularly. I will go tell my village you go tell yours.
  • As the cities grew and we started interacting more we started to fight over water.
  • Now we use dams and levees and they are really helpful and important. Let's all say thanks to the Sumerians!
