Mayan – compare and contrast

In the Mayan culture, the main entertainment was POC-a-Toc. A game which now it’s like basketball. That is something that similar to our lives now but we do not have to go watch it live (we can) but the Mayan did have to watch it live because they didn’t have a tv. So this is a difference.

In Mayan times, there was a strict social structure. There was a higher class which had a ruler and priest, the middle class which were businessmen, in the lower class they had farmers and soldiers and it was hard to get out of the class. Now we don’t have such a strict social structure and to can go in and out and it easier to get a job. You just need an education.

In conclusion, life was very different in the Mayan times but there are some similarities too.

Science – light experiment

I am writing a blog post about my work in science about Light.

Here are 3 facts I learnt in class about….

  • When you put a pencil in water the pencil curves because your eyes have to see a straight line. this is called refraction.
  • The moon is a reflection of the sun and stars are a reflection of the moon.
  • Opaque is all darkness and makes a shadow, transparent is see-through, translucent lets a little light through.

In class, we did an experiment to investigate this topic. The experiment was called The reflection of light.

Now I will explain what we did:

I researched reflective clothing at home and presented it to the class. Here I am:

Here is the old building called Carlton county courthouse. It is not an art gallery anymore but it’s protected by the Heritage Ottawa. 

 

Here is a link to the Ottawa art gallery

 

Here’s is a screenshot of the oag on Google Maps:

Arthous – these are the apartment and condos attach to the art gallery. 

 

In the art gallery, they have an expert. The artist used to do it in Alberta, it’s an animal slide. In the gallery, its the elephant one. To get in the slide, there is a rock wall. The name of the artist Russell Yuristy. It looks very fun.
