Did you know that those two rives forms the major river system in Western Asia. These rivers are coming from the Taurus Mountains in Turkey which passes through Iraq and Syria into the Persian Gulf. These two rives has small tributaries which flows into freshwater rivers, lakes and swamps that is surrounded by dessert. So in the northern part of the Persian Gulf it full of vegetation by the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. Something that you couldn't predict was when it will overflow those two rivers.

Good job Isaac! Did you know that the Tigris and Euphrates rivers helped the Sumerians create their civilization? Without the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers they wouldn't have had fresh water or fertile soil. This made Mesopotamia be in an ideal location. Outside the Tigris and Euphrates rivers their were dessert. The Tigris and Euphrates rivers were very important for the Sumerians for these reasons. You did a very good job talking about the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, great post!
