  • Mesopotamia is in the continent of Asia. Mesopotamia is also in the country of Iraq.
  • We moved to the foothills located in Northern Mesopotamia called Zagros. We had a big problem with lacking space caused from increasing population. So, we had to move again! we moved from Zagros (because of the population to a place called Sumer.)

  • Irrigation systems had ,to be cleaned out from silt. People had to work together and help the farmers clean out the canals.
  • As time went on, all of us started to fight over the river's water. We had a bunch of water because we took out the old canals and built in new ones.
  • All of these advancements helped the Sumer rise into a better region. Because, with replacing the canals there was no silt clogging the canals. So, there was a lot of water. The water helped and so did people moving to the foothills.
