This is amazing, Sophie! I like the creativity you showed in the use of driftwood pieces as book covers. The size of something is important, especially to young kids. Fantastic artwork, by the way!

Once, mankind found itself in a much simpler time. In the ancient world, things changed very little over the course of several generations. While the people of this ancient world certainly did not know as much as we do today, they had the opportunity to experiment and refine their techniques over the course of hundreds of years. These techniques included, everything from spiritual connections to healing. As they did these things over and over, they set the prototype for how the mind works at...

Sophie,I like every bit of what your are doing.I think art is the most effective medium as culture is concern.I mean,if people before us never practiced it,we could still in dark on some issues about culture.We get to know more about culture through art. It's through art that you learnt about First Nations in Canada and which you're planning on passing to your siblings back in Germany and they'll probably pass it to their children and by doing so,the past culture of Canada will be known not...

Re: ANCIENT AFRICAN SCIENCE

I think this is a cool topic and i think the point you make about how with ' the technology we have people in the past were somehow clever than us" is a very true point in many different things, this definitely included.

Ancient history is super cool! I love this idea/thought. It's great that you pointed out they are somehow more clever than us. Without them, we probably wouldn't be where we are now. As a matter of fact, would it be possible that humans now are less knowledgeable/clever due to our use and access to technological devices such as computers?

Re: ANCIENT AFRICAN SCIENCE

Cool! Your research is starting to get super interesting! Where did you find this information? Remember it's really important to cite your resources, and make sure the information is being taken from reliables sources.

I'm absolutely fascinated by your project! Indeed, many ancient peoples have left us structures or scriptures that have yet to be decoded by modern society. For example, I know it's not Egyptian, there's Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England. ( http://www.britannia.com/history/h7.html ) <--- in case you wanted to read more about it... Are you going to be looking at technological science, or would you be interested in other areas of science?

Andhra Azevedo (Mentor) ·
This sounds like a really interesting topic! It might be interesting to also explore what you mean when you think of science and scientists. For your project, are you including architectural and engineering feats or the more classical disciplines of "natural science" like biology, chemistry, physics, and math? Are there certain ways in school that you've learned about science that might influence how you view the way different ancient societies approached science as a discipline? Is there a...

So, I am honestly not too certain about the state of science in Sub-Saharan Africa at any time in history; however, North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula were the centre of technological and mathematical progress the world over during the European medieval era. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...dieval_Islamic_world Just thought it might be worth a look.

Re: What do Dreams mean?

Evan McFee (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Well, the theory is that during your waking hours throughout your life, the sub-conscious absorbs everything that occurs to you, stores them outside the reach of instantaneous recollection, and then projects the appropriate event in the form of a dream. What exactly the purpose of doing that we don't know, but what we do know is that dreams are influenced by external stimuli. Here are some sites to delve into http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...earch_b_5413712.html ...

Ancient Egypt was such a fascinating ancient civilization. It has so many unique characteristics and such a long lasting and changing history. From science and technology to architecture to arts and religion it is a super interesting field of study. Check out the crash course world history-Egypt video, it is very informative and I think it will contribute greatly to your research. Can't wait to see where you will go with this project! Ben Laird

Re: Project Plan- Ancient Egypt

Hi Amanda, This is a really interesting topic. Ancient Egypt is fascinating, them and their technology was so advanced for their time period its really quite amazing. Something interesting to look into in terms of technology is the idea of the pyramids being a battery. It's really interesting actually they way they are designed is a much simpler version of a modern day battery. I'll leave a link below. Anyways this looks super rad so far I'm looking forwards to seeing your progress

Hi Amanda, Nice project, I like your project because its something i really have interest in. At first before i started my project on Poverty i was first looking at ancient gods in Africa but particularly i started to focus in Egypt because of their cultures and how they had organised their gods. It was such fun. I also learnt about the pharaoh and learnt that the were also worshiped as gods. I also love Egyptian movies such as the mummy which tend to explain a short history about the...

Re: Project Plan- Ancient Egypt

Hey Amanda, Ancient Egypt is such a good topic and has such a rich culture and variety of areas to explore. One thing you didn't mention was their astronomy (which is related to science) but the Egyptians had some really interesting discoveries in astronomy. Good luck!

Re: Project Plan- Ancient Egypt

Hi Amanda, I really like your topic of Ancient Egypt. It is such a detailed time in history, that has shaped our society today in many ways. Perhaps when looking at what a day of an average, poor Egyptian would look like, you could compare Egyptians from different classes (rich and poor). This could help you see how different their lives were. Can't wait to see your next post!

Re: Research Round #1- Ancient Egypt

Hey Amanda, I liked the point you made that Egyptians were obsessed with life and not death as I feel that it could be a misconception. As you may know how much Egyptians contributed to science, like the calendar, mathematics, medicine and astronomy. What I find quite interesting was how similar their calendar was to ours, with 365 days, 12 months and three seasons (corresponded to the cycle of the Nile and agriculture). I believe I'd be cool if you looked at some of their involvement with...

Hi Amanda! Your research was very interesting, and it was easy to read too! I haven't learned about ancient Egypt since grade six, so I'm eager to learn more from your posts.

Hey Amanda, neat research! Ancient Egypt is certainly a very fascinating civilization;perhaps one of the most interesting and diverse Ancient civilizations that we know a lot about. At very least it is one of the best preserved ancient cultures. I found it interesting how you focused on a common myth, namely the Egyptians obsession of death. In reality, like so many other ancient cultures but perhaps done in the most extravagant and noticeable way, they were obsessed by the afterlife and...

Re: Research Round #1- Ancient Egypt

Hey Amanda, I too liked your clarification of the misconception of Egyptians being fascinated with death rather than life. Very well-done and detailed research. However, just some feedback, maybe lay out your research differently; more spread out and organized into certain topics. I just think it might be easier to follow, but great work all the same!

Re: Research Round #1- Ancient Egypt

Hi Amanda, I like how you organised your research - it made it very easy to read. Great work! I find it interesting how back then, paper (or papyrus, actually) was so valuable, and now we have tons of it, and nearly everybody uses it every single day.

Re: Research Round #2- Ancient Egypt

Hey Amanda, I didn't know how immensely the Egyptians centered their lives around astronomy! For your next round of research, I believe it would be great if you looked at this study done on king tuts body, as they find some interesting events during his life. http://ngm.nationalgeographic....ng-tut/williams-text Nice Work!

Re: Research Round #2- Ancient Egypt

Hi Amanda, I find it very interesting that much of the Ancient Egyptians' religion was focused on astronomy. This seems to be similar to many other cultures around the world, all having religion based on their astronomical observations. I also find the three seasons that Egyptian farmers interesting as that is quite close to the four seasons that we currently have. For your next round of research, perhaps you could look into why the Egyptians were insistent on building such grand tombs for...

Hey Amanda! Ah Egypt! A place of wonders. Nicely done as you explained certain things in a certain order! While i do know some things about Egypt, it didn't hit me with the division of dynasties. Though i did know about time periods and civilization differences. That fun fact really is interesting and awesome because that obviously didn't go to Europe for quite a while. (which wasn't great but they soon caught up on that idea...) Keep it up! If this isn't your last post! ~Jim CA CBSS

Re: Research Round #3- Ancient Egypt

Hi Amanda, As always, I enjoyed reading your research! It was very rich and detailed. It's interesting that women were equal to men in Egypt... I wonder why other places in the world weren't the same? What made Egypt believe that women and men should be equal, which other places didn't see? Whether you continue with your research on ancient Egypt or if you choose another inquiry, good luck!

Re: Research round #2- How were people in ancient and medieval times able to build outstanding structures?

Hey Yasmin! To this day I am always so surprised on how in the earlier times in history they were able to do so much with what they had. I enjoyed how this post was so detailed and I loved how you included so many facts. From your research so far do you know if any of the methods they once used previously for architecture is still used in todays modern world? Or are there any links between the two? I really look forward to your next post! Good Luck!

Re: Inquiry Question #2- How were people in ancient and medieval times able to build oustanding structures?

Hi Yasmin, I love your topic! I too have questioned their ability to have built these magnificent structures from stone they chipped out of nearby hills and mountains, without any proper tools or safety, it is quite astonishing. All the people who devoted their lives and who have died from building some of these structures that still stand today, makes you wonder what compelled these people to dedicate their life to it. I know in Athens and a lot of other rustic cities, the ancient buildings...

Hi Yasmin, This is a very captivating topic and I too am now curious! I feel like you could talk about how structures and castles from one country differ from another. You saw Europe's structure, now possibly predict how you think that other country's structures will look like. Will they be different? Why? Is it because of something in that country's tradition, or possibly their beliefs? How do their structures differ from today's structures? How are they similar? Hope this helps!

This is such an interesting topic! I think about this a lot. Maybe you could look also at the changes we've seen in religion and rule over the years and how the buildings reflected that? As nowadays religion is so diverse even just in one town, does that effect how detailed and ornate every structure being built was? I'm so excited to see more about this!

It seems there may be a connection between the extent of power a ruler has to make financial decisions and the structures made. In the case of Egyptian pyramids, they were made as tombs for pharaohs. I wonder if leaders in democratic countries today could justify such an elaborate tomb for themselves?

Hey Sophie! Interesting research to do! I am sure there will be lots of information out there for you to find. But im sure you are aware, there may be information sources that aren't too credible to use! Speaking of sources, what are some sources you might plan to use?

Re: The Correlation Between Science and Mythos, Project Plan

This is an awesome topic! Sometimes in order to keep evolving we need to take a step back and look at ancient civilizations to learn from their mistakes and achievements. I think that the comparison between myth and science and how they over lap is a really interesting comparison to make, and I'm really looking forward to seeing your progress!
