Target Audience

We think this material can be understand by students as young as 2nd grade.


YES.  Just like most of our micro-lessons there will be a test after this lesson. We will ask questions requiting a student to reference a chart and translate a cuneiform symbol to English. The entire class is 20 minutes long. 15 minutes will be devoted to material and 5 minutes for testing. You will do great. Don't worry. You can always retest again if you aren't able to achieve 80% or better the first time around.
