Story of the World Ch. 3

The First Writing

The Egyptians were among the first people to have a written language.  Hopefully the following videos give you and your students an understanding of hieroglyphics and cuneiform.  

Please view all videos before showing them to your children to determine if they meet your standards. 



Written Word - Birth of Writing


Mesopotamia The Development of Writing


Basic Overview of Egyptian Hieroglyphics


Print out a copy of hieroglyphics and have your kids spell their names.  
The Rosetta stone - My kids like to look at actual artifacts, it gives them a better idea of what we are talking about and studying.  The British Museum houses the Rosetta Stone.
