Unit 3 Task

A fun lesson could involve students learning about Egyptian hieroglyphs, how images/symbol were used as their written language.  Each student can then create their own code, drawing a different simple picture for each letter of the alphabet.  Once they have completed their alphabet, they can write down a sentence, then change it to their coded version.  Students could then pass their secret note to a classmate and allow each other to decode the message they have written.  This activity would be a great history lesson about different languages as well as coding.  And how without the code sheet coded messages are almost impossible to decode.
