This Cultural Literacy worksheet on the Euphrates River is a full-page document with a two-sentence (one of them a longish compound) reading and five comprehension questions. Incidentally, the second sentence in the reading goes thus: “It was important in the development of many great civilizations in ancient Mesopotamia.” Yes it was. It was also important, given the development of agriculture along its banks, to the advancement of our species as a whole–for better or worse, that is.
