Mesopotamia is an ancient world that not many people know about. I used to be one of them before Mr. Klumper (an amazing s.s. teacher) paved the way! Mesopotamia is a very interesting place. It is between two rivers, the Tigris and Eurphrates river.That's how it got its name. Mesopotamia actually means land between two rivers!
