Hi, I'm Cheyenne, I'm a historian. Today we are going back to 4000 BCE.
These people lived in between the Tigris and Euphrates river and worked very hard to keep their civilization running.
What do you see?
This is a ziggurat. This is where they worshiped gods and goddesses.

The people believed more than one god. They believed in gods and goddesses.
The two major physical features are the Tigris and Euphrates river. The first one is important because they used it for fertile soil and the second one is important because they used it for drinking water.
These people were polytheistic. That means they believed in more than one god.
The ziggurat was built by mud-bricks and was very important to the civilization because they stored food in there and that is where they worshipped the gods.
How has this civilization influenced ours?
This civilization influenced ours because they started irrigation.
Can you guess which civilization I was talking about?
