Sonlight Level G – Cuneiform (Week 2)

Ancient Writing:

This week we learned that ancient Sumerian writing was called cuneiform.  I thought it would be fun to create a cuneiform tablet for history this week.


First, I had Haley watch a couple of clips about cuneiform on our Sonlight Level G playlist.

Next, she went online to Penn Museum.  They have a really cool Cuneiform tool.  She typed her name into the prompt and it inscribed it in cuneiform.

First, she shaped her clay into a stone tablet form.

Next, she used clay tools to inscribe the cuneiform text onto her tablet.

She set it aside to dry.  It turned out REALLY cool when she finished it!
