Gr.4 Visits Kofun Museum

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).
