A Cultural Friday

As the title suggests, today is Friday, and we are back into culture!

This is Mr. Helmuth posting today; here is what we covered in class.

The bellwork asked us to write a short story using five of the ten ingredients of culture. The story could portray a real event, or it could be made up.

The important thing to remember for this assignment was that we wanted to give examples of the ingredients, and not just say which ingredient we were using.

Following the bellwork, we FINALLY finished off the culture notes, and jumped into a new assignment.

For this, the students were required to draw pictures of each of the ten ingredients of culture (food, government, religion, standard of living, language, values, arts, dress, customs, and ethnicity) without using words.

Due to our easy going nature, Mr. Habecker and I decided not to have the class complete this assignment as homework, so we will continue to work on it next week.

For the extra credit this weekend, tell us a story of something you did this weekend using at least 5 of the ten ingredients of culture,  underlining the ingredients as you go. After reading the blog with an adult, have them sign the paper, put your name, date, and hour on it, and turn it in Monday.

Have a great weekend!
