IntroductionThe world's first great civilizations developed in or around river valleys. The four great river valley civilizations were the Nile River Valley, the Tigris-Euphrates River Valley, the Huang-He River Valley, and the Indus River Valley.

Step 1: Gaining Knowledge Directions: 1) You will receive 5 pages for this assignment. They will end up in your notebook. 2) To learn the information, you will need to click on the following links for each civilization and watch the videos/read the excerpts (anything that is blue is a link you can click on.) 3) You MUST click/watch the 4 videos with the BOLD titles below. 4) As you click on the links and learn the material, you will fill in the paper with key words and phrases to help you remember.
Using the information you just learned, go to the Venn Diagrams.
In the middle of the Venn Diagrams, write at least 2 things that the two civilizations have in common. Then, on either side, write at least 2 things that are unique to only those river civilizations. (In other words, what they don't have in common.)
