giv me a few pointers on what to base my comparison and contrast on.

    I'm glad you chose Egypt and Mesopotamia -- because I know the most about these two cultures. :-)

    Before you write a thesis statement or an introductory paragraph, you need to list the similarities and differences between Egypt and Mesopotamia.

    Some of the items you should consider are:
    geography and location (rivers?)
    agriculture (crops?)
    language and writing
    interment of the dead
    religion
    government
    monuments

    After you've completed your list, then you can write your thesis statement.

    Check these sites for information about thesis statements.
