Irrigation

Irrigation helped a lot because it controlled how much water crops received.

This video tells how Mesopotamia used tools like irrigation and how they invented writing. They invented the wheel which helped a lot because they used it to carry goods. They had the ziggurat where the god lived. They had city states where a lot of people lived.

The wheel helped a lot because instead of having to carry things you load it onto a cart and wheel it away.

Cuneiform was the first written language. It helped because before then they did not know how to write.

The ziggurat was like the church. The ziggurat was a temple. They used it to worship.
