Cuneiform writing by our fifth graders

Cuneiform is one of the oldest forms of writing known.

Grade 5 students studied about Mesopotamia during their Social Studies class, with a thorough integration of their English skills. They wrapped up the unit with an activity, in which students wrote their names in cuneiform writing with extraordinary creativity and enthusiasm.

Our lifelong learners displayed their knowledge and acted as Sumerian scribes, people who were trained to write cuneiform and record many of the languages spoken in Mesopotamia.
