7 Sites You Should Use When Teaching About Early River Civilizations

by History Gal

It can be hard to get students excited about Early River Civilizations like Sumer, Assyria, Babylonia, India, China, and even Egypt.  But, I've found some really helpful and engaging sites that I like to use. You can pull these together to create a webquest or just pull of few of these into your own lesson.
