Mesopotamia tales

Professional Storyteller Tom Lee visited the Middle School of Plainville on March 26th to support the sixth grade study of Mesopotamia. Lee began the visit with a presentation to the entire sixth grade on the Epic of Gilgamesh, a story about the first “superhero” ever. The assembly was followed by an in-depth discussion with several classes on cuneiform (one of the earliest forms of writing) and the arts in Mesopotamia.
