Ancient Civilizations Come to Life!

Ancient Civilizations are bought to life by Mrs. Ey's 6th grader students!  The students learned all about one of the world's first cities: Catal Huyuk. All that remains of Catal Huyuk, the first city, is a gullied, pitted mound, in a wheat field. Little is left to show that this place was a primary source of Western Civilization and the first organized cosmopolitan city-state. Only one acre of the thirty-two acre mound has been excavated, recorded, and reported. Those excavations reveal an almost fairy-tale city of shrines and temples, of luxury, and wealth.To recreate their wall paintings the students designed and created their own wall stamps.  The mural is a work of modern art!
