Cuneiforms & Heiroglyphs

Yesterday while studying SOTW1, we made our own Sumerian Cuneiforms & Egyptian Heiroglyphs.

To make the cuneiforms, we used air-drying clay & a screwdriver. cuneiforms have lots of triangles and you make them by wiggling the screwdriver back & forth. This was kind of difficult, and Alexandra decided it was easier to just use our alphabet. I wrote out Alexandra.

We also had stamps for the heiroglyphs, so we didn't have to paint them - that would be very hard! Alexandra spelled out her name & a few other words on some papyrus we'd bought at an art store.
