This activity is student centered and Common Core! First, students read a history page about the evolution of cuneiform in Ancient Mesopotamia. Then, students support the main idea of the reading with supporting text, summarize and draw conclusions in a printable writing guide. Next, students try writing like a Sumerian by trying to copy early cuneiform pictograms and later phonetic symbols. A writing translation chart is included.
