Agricultural survey and the documentation of livestock or goods was the basis for the first written language. Youngsters discuss sorting and counting, and how these skills have been used for thousands of years. They accent their class discussion by reading an informational passage and using the information to create a survey-inspired work of art.
- Multiple worksheets and reading passage that address counting, sorting, and reading comprehension are included
- The art activity is historically inaccurate; people were not practicing agriculture during the ice age. Use examples of early cuneiform as those seen in ancient Mesopotamia to inspire your art project instead
