Inventions Week, Day Four

Today we learned about ancient Mesopotamian inventions. I had to look up where Mesopotamia was, it covered present day Iraq, Syria and Turkey. It included Babylon. They invented the ever vital wheel. They also invented spears, helmets and some kind of chariot. And perfume was invented on their watch, so I guess that's how people managed until soap was invented! For our activity, we drew pictures of spears, helmets and chariots. A couple of the kids even got some help in making a spear, scary!
