In Class we have been studying different types of early civilazations from millions of years ago. The four regions that we had studied are Mesopotamia, Egypt, India, and China.
Mesopotamia (also known as the fertile crescent) was the first civilization ever created. 6,000 years ago this civilization grew upon the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Present day Mesopotamia is Iraq.
India had many physical land features like the Himalayas and The Indus River Valley. The first two cities that were formed in India was Harappa and Mohenjo Daro.
Egypt was astablished upon the Nile river. This land feature helped the Eygptians survive. During this time workers built pyramids to honor their pharohs such as The Great Pyramid of Khufu.
China's resources were the Yellow and Yangzi River. One belief of the Chinese was that their ancestors could come back and harm you or help you once they died
