In this unit, we learned about three of the world’s earliest civilizations: Egypt, Mesopotamia, and China. For this assignment, you will compare and contrast two of these civilizations. Instructions: • Research the two civilizations that you did not describe in this week’s Discussion Board. • First, discuss why you think the two civilizations developed where they did.
o For example, why would civilization develop in the northeast corner of Africa but not farther west?
o What role did rivers play in the development of civilization?
o Was climate a factor in early civilizations?
• Compare and contrast the two civilizations you have chosen in these three areas: political structures, writing, and the organization of their society.
