Tue. 9/13 - Finishing up the "Perspectives on Scale and Humanity's Place in the Cosmos" packet, and then analyzing and inferring on Origin Stories based on images.
Today we finished up the "Perspectives on Scale and Humanity's Place in the Cosmos" activity/packet (see slide below). Then we began our exploration of "Origin Stories" with the "Tell me the origin story" activity (see slide below) in which students were tasked with analyzing an image based on a real origin story in an attempt to infer and create an origin story from their assigned image (images below, click on them and zoom in).
HW - tomorrow students must be ready to present their "Tell me the origin story" (1-3 minute class share-out). Also, students need to finish the "Perspectives on Scale and Humanity's Place in the Cosmos Packet" by Friday (including Questions and Summaries).
Have a great night, keep up the good work Big Historians!
