Communication through time

This week in our topic we have been continuing to look at inventions throughout time. This week we looked at communication through time and how it has developed from the the Stone Age. We focused on written communication and followed it from cave paintings through to the alphabet we use today.

The first type of communication we looked at were cave paintings. They were used to celebrate and record the important parts of the Stone Age like hunting‘ - Tegan

The petroglyphs are like cave paintings but they are carved into the wall’ - Aaron

'Pictograms are where pictures are used in a sequence to retell stories and events.' - Daisy

'The first type of alphabet was used during ancient Egyptian Times. Each letter was represented with a picture. These were called hieroglyphs.' - Charles and Jola

Hieroglyphs then evolved into the alphabet we use today.
