Students will "do history" by making history come alive and act as scribes discovering the first popularized writing system: cuneiform!
Lesson Plan includes directions and handouts ONLY. Not included: butcher paper, clay, chopsticks.
Students will learn that pictograms are ineffective as a standardized writing system, but cuneiform made writing easy. Students will discover that cuneiform made writing less confusing, fast, uniform, and simple to teach and learn.
Have fun providing your students with the experience of becoming Mesopotamian scribes!
