Constructing the Basic Lap BookMaterials Needed: 4 colored file foldersWhite school glue4 sheets of white or colored letter sized cardstockYou will need cardstock for the shape books, pocket books and flap books. Templates are provided forprinting these items. You will also need plain copier paper for these. Envelopes cut in half or smallermake nice pockets for pocket books.General Gluing Instructions Use tiny dots of glue spaced one or two inches apart for all gluing. No blobs of glue. Glue dotsshould be no bigger than a lady bug.Do not use lines of glue or try to cover the entire surface of the item in glue. It takes too long todry and the paper (even cardstock) will wrinkle. Too much glue will bleed through plain paper.Do not use glue sticks. The glue will dry out and lose its stickiness and your stuff will fall out ofthe lap book.Tape is okay for some things, but can make the book look messy.Double sided tape works for most things, but is expensive. If you decide to use double sidedtape, use the permanent kind.InstructionsN.B – It is easier to glue the lap book together if all the tabs are in the same place on all the folders, butthis is not a requirement. If the tabs are not in the same place, you need to be careful not to put glue onareas that won’t be covered with another file folder to prevent folders sticking together in the wrongplaces.These instructions are for putting the entire “frame” of the lap book together, but you don’t have to doit this way.You can also assemble the lap book in stages, adding file folders one at a time as you covereach civilization. For younger kids, or to save time, you may want to do the basic assembly yourself. Ittakes quite a lot of patience to explain to an entire class of 6th graders how to glue the lap bookstogether.22.214.171.124.Open a file folder and lay it flat on the work surface.Fold the edges so that they meet at the center fold, being careful not to overlap the tab area.Crease the folds using a spoon or straight edge.Repeat for all four folders.3
5. Print the cardstock sheets for the center section of each folder. Take the sheet for Mesopotamia andon the back, place very small glue dots every couple of inches around the edges and in the middle.Use tiny dots of glue. They will dry faster and the paper will not wrinkle.6. Glue the cardstock on the inside of one of the file folders to reinforce it and prevent it from foldingalong the original factory fold.7. Repeat for all four folders.8. Take the Mesopotamia folder and lay it in front of you with the flaps on top, closed.9. On the right hand flap, place small dots of glue around the edges every 2 or 3 inches, being carefulnot to place the dots too close to the edge.10. Take the second folder (Egypt) and glue the left hand flap to the right hand flap of the first folder,aligning the folded edges carefully. The edges of the flaps will not align perfectly unless the tabs arein exactly the same position. This is fine. Allow the glue to dry.11. Turn the folders so that the back of the second (Egypt) folder is on top and the flaps are closed.Place small dots of glue around the edges every 2 or 3 inches and a few dots in the center.12. Place the back of the third folder (Indus River) on top of the glued side and align the edges carefully.Allow the glue to dry.13. Turn the stack so that the third folder (Indus River) is on top with the flaps closed. Place small dotsof glue around the edges and in the middle of the right hand flap. Take the last folder (Huang HeRiver) and glue the left hand flap to the right hand flap of the third folder, aligning the folded edgesas before. Allow the glue to dry.14. You should now have a four section lap book. Place the closed lap book on the table with the firstfolder face up, so that it opens to the left. The back of this folder will be on top and will be the coverof your lap book.15. Using pencil very lightly number this as page 1.16. Open the lap book and number the outside of the left flap as 2, the inside of the same flap as 3, thecenter as 4, and the inside of the right flap as 5. Continue numbering in this way, ending with theback cover which will be page 18.4

Preparematerials ahead of time for making pockets by cutting 9” x 12” sheets of construction paper into three4-inch strips. Cut each strip in half lengthwise, creating six rectangles. Students should take a rectangleand fold it in half along the long edge. They should tape the two short edges together forming a pocket.Alternately, you can cut an envelope vertically making a pocket. Fold the resulting pocket so that it fitsthe cards. Glue the pocket into their lap book on page 3, close to the top of the flap. Slide the pocketbook into the pocket.In between the map and the pocket book, there will be room for a picture or other decoration.

Epic of GilgameshAssyrian cylinder seal ca. 600s BC; Schoyen CollectionThe Epic of Gilgamesh is a story about a Sumerian king (Gilgamesh) who seems to have lived around 2500 BC,in Mesopotamia. Story-tellers probably began telling this story not long after he died, and someone probablywrote down the story about 1700 BC, in the time of the Babylonian Empire, but the oldest written copy of it thatwe still have dates to the Assyrian period (around 900 BC). Archaeologists found the tablet in the ruins of thepalace of one of the Assyrian kings.The Epic begins with Gilgamesh ruling the city of Uruk, but he is not doing a good job. Everyone is mad at himbecause he has a lot of girlfriends all at once, he spends all his time partying instead of working, and he isdisrespectful to the elders in the city.Then a messenger tells Gilgamesh about a wild man who is living out in the hills near the city. This wild man'sname is Enkidu. He goes naked or wears furs, and he drinks only water from the river. But he is very strong.Gilgamesh thinks this is interesting, so he sets a trap for Enkidu to get him to come to the city and be his friend.Gilgamesh sends a beautiful woman to Enkidu, and when he sees her he kisses her and the kiss works like magicto tame him: he follows her back to the city and becomes civilized.(Contrast this theme of how living a settled lifeand farming is so much better than living a nomadic life as a shepherd with the opposite view held by the Jews atabout the same time). (Also notice similar themes in the later West Asian religion of Zoroastrianism).Now that Gilgamesh has a friend, Enkidu, he is not so bored anymore and he stops being mean to everyone andbothering the girls. Instead, Gilgamesh and Enkidu plan a big heroic trip to the West to get wood for building(because very little wood grew in Mesopotamia). They travel there and fight the great monster Humbaba.(Probably the real King Gilgamesh did trade with Lebanon for wood, though he may not have really gone therehimself to get it!)16
When the two heroes get home, though, they begin to have problems. Gilgamesh is so cool now that thegoddess Ishtar falls in love with him, but when she asks him to be her boyfriend, Gilgamesh says no (and heis pretty rude about it too). Ishtar is angry and she makes Enkidu die of a fever. Gilgamesh is very sad and upsetthat his friend died. And he is afraid that he will someday die too.Finally Gilgamesh travels to the Land of the Dead to see if he himself can somehow live forever. While he isthere, he meets a man named Utnapishtim, who tells Gilgamesh a story about a great flood. Utnapishtim tellsGilgamesh that the gods sent this flood because people made too much noise on earth and hurt the gods' ears. Hehimself survived the flood in a boat. (this is probably related to the story of Noah).This is what one of the tablets that was found in the Assyrian king's library looks like. This one tells the story of the Flood.Gilgamesh finds out that he can live forever if he can stay awake for a week watching this plant. But he fallsasleep in the end. He goes back to his city, still sad but realizing that everyone has to die sometime, and he goesback to being a good king."The Epic of Gilgamesh." 2014.
