Ancient Children Homework on Display

 

01 October 2004

 

 

Documents and other items recording the history of Iranian children’s literature have been put on display for the first time ever at the Niavaran Historical and Cultural Palace Complex.

 

The earliest known homework of Iranian children, written on mud tablets discovered in Susa dating back to the first millennium B.C., as well as pictures of the oldest Iranian children’s toy ever discovered, which resembles a camel with two children sitting on it, are among the items on view at the exhibition, which opened on September 30.

 

Schoolbooks of children from the Constitutional Movement era (early 20th century), documents from the educational system of Iran in previous eras, a series of miniatures featuring Iranian children, as well as photos of Qajar era children are also on display.

 

Other programs being held on the sidelines of the exhibition include a performance of a children’s play entitled “The Date Tree and the Goat”, a workshop for children to make postcards, and another workshop for children to set up models clad in Qajar era children’s costumes. The children will also be allowed to take photos of themselves dressed in the Qajar costumes.

 

In addition, children participating in the event will be asked to make seven large pots, which will later be filled with gifts to be sent to the quake-stricken children of Bam.

 

The children’s orchestra is also scheduled to perform a concert during the event.

 

Sponsored by the Foundation for Research on the History of Children’s Literature, the exhibition will run until October 8.
