In humanities class we finished Chapter 2 of The Mayflower and did some timeline review. We explored this awesome resource showing territories and language groups of Indigenous/Native People in the Americas (and Australia). Next week we will be doing some cool map and timeline activities, as well as reading Chapter 3. Many students have finished their papers comparing the sea voyage described Celia Rees’ Witch Child to the voyage the pilgrims made on the Mayflower, and most students have started reading Joseph Bruchac’s Winter People.
In science class students are continuing to study our land form model (now an archipelago, after a lot of “flooding”). The students are in the process of drawing maps of the newly formed archipelago and will label them next week.
In health class this week we covered puberty. Next week we will review all the topics we’ve studied so far (gender roles/stereotypes, sexism, boundaries and consent, and puberty) and say farewell to Whole Children‘s wonderful teacher, Brian Melanson, until next school year!
