After finishing up our unit on Mesopotamia, we read the epic poem “Lugalbanda, Boy at War”. The kids were so excited to read this story because we studied the epic of Gilgamesh and Lugalbanda is thought to be his father. Their prior knowledge of Mesopotamian culture really brought the story to life! The project included retelling the story in poetic fashion. They translated the title “Lugalbanda” into cuneiform and created an illustration for their poem. They presented to their classmates and provided positive feedback as a culminating activity.
