Cuneiform Writing

15th May 18

Colegio Palacio de Granda Asturias

In year 4 we are dealing with Ancient Civilizations. Our students pretended to be ancient scribes from Mesopotamia.  They used Cuneiform alphabet to write their names on plasticine tablets for their classmates to decipher.

First we went out to find our “reed stylus” and then we started the challenge.

They all had a great time getting used to the new alphabet and the styluses and also writing and guessing whose name was written on each tablet. To see the photo gallery of the activity, please, click on the image below.
