PAGE 9 - ANCIENT HEBREW WRITING
The students are asked to write their name using the ancient Aramaic letters accompanied with a suggestion to write a message using these ancient letters.
Using a web 2.0 application called Flockdraw (www.flockdraw.com) allows each student, without having to create an account, to use drawing tools to write their name / secret message. Upon saving, the application offers a URL, posting the creation onto a gallery.
By copying and pasting the URL onto a word document, the teacher can share the URLs among students, creating a riddle lesson, where each student will have to decode another student's secret message. A fun and interactive way to use ancient letters and create a nice introductory activity to the unit.
