In Social Studies, we have been learning about democracy in Ancient Greece and comparing it to our modern-day democracy in Canada. After doing some research and creating a comparison table, we had to present a short speech on which democracy we thought was better. Mme. Bunker gave us feedback to help guide our learning - for example, what was our criteria for "better" or "fair" - and we had an opportunity to record a second improved version of our speech. Below are a few examples. Enjoy!
We have spent quite a bit of time these past few weeks learning about social roles in Ancient Egypt. We explored the importance of the pharaoh and how the nobles and scribes served as "assistants" in a way. We learned that there is social class hierarchy that can help us better understand these and many other roles in this ancient civilization.
Once we had a good basic understanding of these important social roles, we were ready to begin our first mini project: a skit. We have some talented actors and actresses in Division 1, so it was no problem at all jumping right into this activity.
Today were our final presentations. We will use what we learn from this skit to help us go more in depth during our final project starting later this week. Below is one of our performances... enjoy!
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
