Transcript of Social Studies Project

What Are the Inventions that the Sumerians Invented? In this project, I will explain the inventions that the Sumerians invented and how they are used now. Sit back in your seat because you are about to go back in the past! The Wheel The wheel is a very popular tool that almost every single human uses. A wheel is a circle made up of metal, wood, or rubber with air consumed it (the tire). As a wheel moves, it reduces friction (the force that makes stuff stop. Ex: If I throw my pencil case on the floor it will move then stop), which is why when you press on the accelerator of a car, the car will grip the ground and move, and when you leave the accelerator the car slows down. The Sumerians used wheels to make a plow, while Ancient Egyptians used them to make chariots. The wheel is modernly used in cars, trucks, buses, airplanes, etc... Wheels are also used in kids' toys (remote control cars, pull back cars, remote control airplanes, etc... Wheels are used in many other things too. The Plow The Sailboat The sailboat was also invented by the Sumerians. A sailboat is a boat moved partly or entirely by sails. Nowadays, there are soooo many types of sailboats that are used to fish or just take a relaxing cruise through the ocean, and they all come from these people. The sailboat then evolved into boats with motors then into yachts. Add Text The Sumerians invented the plow, a wagon on wheels with two spikes driven into the ground. The plow was operated by having a human or an animal. Here is how it works, the animal or human pulls the plow, the movement makes the spikes dig a long line. Seeds are than dropped into the line, this way of farming was much more easier than digging with hands. That way the water would get to the seeds much more easier too. The plow evolved into the tractor, which is what we use nowadays to farm.
