Students study ancient writing

By Joseph Vernacotola – Students in Mrs. Susan Jamison’s sixth-grade social studies classes at Barberton Middle School are creating Cuneiform tablets as part of their study of ancient Mesopotamia. Cuneiform script is one of the earliest systems of writing, invented around the 31st century, BC. The students created salt dough tablets to simulate the clay tablets that Sumerians used.
