to:Social Studies 10, B

Draw a physical map of the Middle East. This map is not political, meaning do not draw the country lines, because the countries that exist now did not exist thousands of years ago.  Your map must incude:

The Tigris and Euphrates rivers

The Black, Mediterranian, Caspian, Red, and Arabian Sea and the Persia Gulf

The ancient cities of Ur (where the Tigris and Euphrates meet), Babylon (modern-day Baghdad), Jerusalem, Bethleham (right below Jerusalem), Damascus, Mecca, Medina, and Istanbul

The Arabian Desert (most of the Arabian desert) and the Hindu Kush (the mountain range that divides the Middle East from India)
