Historic inscriptions of buildings generally give information on their patriarchs and construction time. They are found in different styles, colours and forms. During the walking routes through Zeyrek, our participants have come across with many of these historic inscriptions dating to Ottoman period. Although these are part of our common heritage, they were either in Ottoman or Arabic and were difficult assets for the children to understand the meaning. They kept a distance from them and mostly regarded them as prayings. In this activity on ‘inscriptions’ children were given basic information and function on the meaning of inscriptions. Different inscriptions were pointed out and in the classroom environment, the children were asked to design their own inscriptions, write a new inscription in turkish reflecting their thoughts and feelings about their own homes and schools. This activity has helped children to associate themselves with different periods of history and to get more acquinted with history.
