We'll get into that later though. Today we worked on the map during the bellwork time, then we watched a video about Hinduism. The students get a lot of the video - but they won't realize what all they've picked up until we discuss it tomorrow. It is a fascinating topic to discuss.
Yesterday for bellwork, they worked on their new religions chart. (It can be found HERE if you need a copy.) The chart has the three monotheistic religions, along with Hinduism. All four religions have a lot of similarities, but Hinduism - being pantheistic/polytheistic - is very distinct.
The students need to bring four things with them to class tomorrow:
- Their map (it should be almost finished)
- Their colored pencils
- Their Hinduism Video Viewing Guide
- Their Religions Chart
Tomorrow's blog entry will be much more discussion heavy than today's or yesterday's. Really, I'm just hoping you kids bring everything you need tomorrow. You might want to read that list again. Also again. And again. One more time. Ok... that was all a big joke. Ha. Ha ha ha ha ha ha. Seriously, *wipes tears from eyes* seriously, don't forget that stuff.
To get the extra credit, you should have read the blog entry with a adult that lives with you. If you (collective) did read it, write the following quote on a piece of paper and have the adult sign it.
Quote: "No wonder you rise in the middle of the night/ to look up the date of a famous battle in a book on war." -Billy Collins (Extra extra credit to the person who gives me the name of the poem that came from. I can't recollect what it is...) Remember your stuff tomorrow.
