Ancient Sumer: Design an Instrument

Ancient Sumer: Design an Instrument

Children will participate in a short study of the importance of music in Ancient Sumer as well as the instruments used. Aligning with the 2014 National Curriculum of England’s Key Stage 2 History objective of studying one of the first civilisations, children will have opportunities to look at instruments uncovered by archaeologists studying Ancient Sumer. They will then learn about the science of sound before designing, making and evaluating their own instruments. A digital copy of the file for editing and sharing on Google Classrooms and Seesaw is available with download. More on Ancient Sumer coming soon!

Found Treasures: Mesopotamia ClipArt-50 Pcs.! Restored Public Domain Images.

Found Treasures: Mesopotamia ClipArt-50 Pcs.! Restored Public Domain Images.

Found Treasures "Ancient Mesopotomia" Clip-Art features a beautiful collection of restored, edited, and reformatted public domain images (now!) fit for classroom and product use! These incredible images are inspired by ancient peoples, and in some cases, by the ancients themselves! Enjoy a set of worry-free* selection of 50 images that have been through a variety of digital restoration and reformatting to make them perfect for projects and presentations! *(Email transcripts double checking for permission are included!) *No restrictions for United States sellers only. Status in other countries is unknown. Check your country laws for public domain restrictions. Most images were made before 1928 or by ancient sources. Set Information: This set includes images that range from 1" to 8" in color, grayscale, and B/W. Due the nature of the images, most clip-art pieces are available in only one version. Images are drawn, painted, or photographs. Some images are taken from ancient sources, others from academic. All images are 300 dpi, png. Themes: This set showcases a variety of themes including but not limited to architecture, pyramid, figures, patterns, warriors, jewelry, obelisks, engravings, and more! Background: While viewing public domain images for references, I found myself in awe of the beauty, precision, and uniqueness of these spectacular images. It seemed to be a shame that many of these timeless images would go unseen when they had so much to offer students and teachers. While there were many fantastic pictures available, most needed a variety of edits and touch-up work to be suited for reuse. I decided it would be worthwhile to restore and share my "Found Treasures" in a format that would be better suited for projects
