NeW UNiT: Many Worlds Meet!

We started our new unit, History of US, distributed textbooks, and explored categories for study: PEGS (Political, Economic, Geography and Society.
Our study of the First Americans will begin by collecting, interpreting and analyzing historical evidence by completing our 1st Chapter Walk. A Chapter Walk uses captions, illustrations, maps, graphs, photos, etc to complete a fact-finding mission. For example, the First Americans trapped deer by encircling the animal and using bows and arrows. Can you say DUCK!?

  1. I think you should get the app stampede ride. It’s a really funny game and I absolutely love it. It’s just like temple run but better!! You get to run with bulls and if you get far enough they run at you. You have figure out how to jump over things and make sure not to hit anything or you’ll get chased by a bull. I really like this game and I think everyone else would too.

  2. Hello Mrs. Digangi. I have noticed that in our class we are learning about ancient tribes and how they lived. There are many tribes that are still not known for why they left or abandoned their land. But sometimes identifying the departure is easy. Such as the tribe that inhabited the historic landmark we now know as easter island. Easter island is an island full of ancient monuments but contains no sign of life what so ever. Historians were confused how such a thriving population could just leave in an instant. But research was done and theories were made until it was decided which one was the most logical. Like the natives in the north east, trees and the population was growing sporadically. At the rate of the time it was too much for a low technology society to handle. More trees began to die and resources went low beyond the thinkable. The last of the natives on easter island eventually starved. There was no where for them to go since they were basically in the middle of the ocean on a desert island. All that remains of their civilization is their stone monuments which still stand today. My point is that even though most natives died because of unfertilized land of north america, they all still had a place to go (unlike the easter island tribe). Life was difficult in the past even though it seems like a breeze today. And in the future we will come to wonder how we even survived with the life style we had in the past or possibly the present.
