How were things similar or different in ancient times? How has technology changed our world? What inventions affected civilizations in positive or negative ways? These are the questions Gr. 4 students have been considering this week. They are inquiring about the relationships and interconnectedness of current and past civilizations. These questions came up when they visited Shidami Kofun Museum, a preserved archaeological park with ancient tombs from 4th-7th century AD. They learned about life in the Kofun era and had a great time making Magatama (pendants) and Kusudama (bracelets).
