Middle School

Scribe School 2018

In Grade 7 History, the boys in 7-2 designed and made their own cuneiform clay tablets, the objective being to replicate one of the earliest forms and purposes of written language. They began by writing a message in English about some aspect of trade. They then transcribed the message into Sumerian cuneiform script, and finally used their stylus to press the message into the soft clay tablet.
