These questions go with Discovery Education's "Journals Through History Development of Written Language" video, which is a GREAT resource to use with 4th-7th graders while studying Mesopotamia. By the time students are done answering the questions they will have a clear overview of how writing developed in Mesopotamia. I have my students study these movie questions for their Mesopotamia Test.
Topics covered in the video questions include: the reasons why Mesopotamians began writing, pictographs and symbols, cuneiform, stylus, clay tablets, scribes, taxes, myths, epics, Gilgamesh, etc.
