We started off class this week by letting the students choose some activities to continue or complete before we moved on to our study of Ancient China.
One student put a roof on the houses we had made for Mohenjo-Daro, along with adding a skeleton in the street as a reminder that several skeletons were found. This lead to the idea that there must have been a mass exodus at one point since there weren’t many skeletons!
Two other students worked on their “That’s good. That’s bad.” story from a few weeks ago and presented it to the class. They continue to work on it in their free time. Two other students decided to work with Story Cubes, while the final two students worked with me on a brand new “That’s good. That’s bad.” story.
Stories and Art!
I called the class together to begin Ancient China. We learned about pictograms that were discovered at the earliest site and compared them to the objects or actions that they represent. We made up our own pictograms, with each student finishing a pictogram sentence that they’ll share with the class next week.
See you then!
