Storyboard Text

  • Stable Food Supply
  • People needed to be around water because they need to live. Animals and plants needed it to survive. A plow dug the ground to make farming easier. 
  • Social Structure and Government
  • Priests were the most powerful people. The king was the second. Government officials were next. Slaves were at the bottom. 
  • Religion
  • The Sumers built Ziggurats for their Gods. The structures were built to show their beliefs and they decorated them with jewels.
  • The Arts
  • The metalworkers made objects like weapons and cups. They thought music bought joy to people and the gods.
  • Technology
  • The Sumers invented the wheel and it helped better the lives of later groups.  This was key in improving Sumer life.
  • Writing
  • The Sumers invented their own written language called cuneiform.  They would etch their writing on clay tablets. SPLAT! That is the end!
