    Stat with the importance of farming and the need for fertile soil. THen talk about how rivers are important for civilization. The students might not remember fertile crescent or mesopotamia in 10 years but they should remember what is needed to create a civilization. Make this fun and hands on. Oh also the importance of writing. You could have students be scribes and see if they can write down everything that happens in a day. They could tell their parents, the parents have to write it down like scribes then the students bring the stories back and see if they change like oral history. You could have them be archetects of their own Ziggurat. Have fun
