Renaissance

In this unit, there were many things that I enjoyed. Firstly, I really enjoyed doing the collages because it was fun and different from what we usually do. As well I really liked watching the movie because it was interesting. I also learnt many things such as that the people in the Renaissance took ideas from the Roman and Greek empire. Also, I learnt that people in the Renaissance were less focused on the Church and more on improving the life of everyone. If I could do anything differently, I would make sure that I filled in more of the white space in my collage. One suggestion for next time is that we could have taken more time with the unit because it felt like it was a bit rushed.

Religion Field Trip Reflection

Recently, we went on a religion field trip. There were many things that I enjoyed. I thought it was really interesting to learn about the different religions from a close up view. There were a few thing that I learned. Firstly, in Sikhism if you are baptized, you cannot cut your hair, you have to wear a turban and you cannot eat meats. As well they wear a steel bracelet to symbolize strength. Secondly, in Sikhism, Buddhism and some Jewish synagogues, men and woman are treated as equals. One thing that I did not like was that we ran out of time to visit the Islamic Mosque. Overall, this was a great field trip that taught us a lot.
