Lesson Plans: Rosetta Stone Project
A lesson developed for ninth graders (though adaptable to other grade levels) which teaches students about the development of scripts in Mesopotamia and Egypt and how cuneiform and hieroglyphs were finally deciphered through the discovery of the Rosetta Stone. In this hands-on project, students make their own Rosetta Stone as they learn about ancient cultures of the Near East.
