Building Ziggurats for Museum Club

As part of their study of Mesopotamia, students are building ziggurats.

Did you know that a ziggurat is a type of massive structure built in ancient Mesopotamia and has the form of a terraced compound of successively receding stories or levels? Or that ziggurats are first attested in the late 3rd millennium BC and probably inspired the biblical story of the Tower of Babel?

At home, one student used mainly Amazon boxes to create his ziggurat, along with his "beloved glue gun" and spray paint to finish.
