After students learn about the ancient Sumerians, they are going to assume the role of an artisan. The king has ordered your students to create a new currency. The currency must reflect the values and daily life of the ancient Sumerians. For example, students may include topics about stable food supply, government, social structure, the arts, writing, religion, and technology.
The product includes a detailed direction sheet with six requirements for students and a one page rubric, along with four currency templates (1/2 sheet and full page options). The product also includes a two-page chart to help students understand the currency of the United States Dollar and a teacher answer key.
Your students will love this project! Even though their illustrations and writing must be based on evidence, there is a lot of room for creativity.
