This week in humanities, students started the beginning stages of their cultural similarities and differences project (during which they will compare and contrast the Native Americans and European Colonists of 1600s America). Students read the “Cultural Differences” section of this resource from the Pequot Museum and, as a class, filled out venn diagrams about each of the five topics topic: spirituality, technology, land, shelter, and clothing. Going forward, students will work with their partners to take notes on their topic while we read The Mayflower and eventually present on their topic in April.
In science, students continued their study of heat and temperature by making thermometers and using them to calculate absolute zero. Today, instead of a field trip, we watched the first episode of PBS’s series “We Shall Remain: America Through Native Eyes.” During the movie we had ice cream!
