Today we went on another field trip to a Jewish Synagogue and the person who told us the facts was Anna Van de Bery. When we got there we had to walk 3 blocks to the synagogue then we took 5 min to write in our journals. Shane then went to get the speaker to help us then she came out and we all gathered around. When we gathered she told us some back round information about the synagogue like the synagogue was boult by one family! Then we went inside and we got to chose our own seats. Then she explained things from the beginning like the cathectic priest did. scott notes that the Jewish religion is very similar than the Catholic religion. We mainly talked about the rules and in Jewish there are 613 commandments Then she talked about scrolls and in the front of the the synagogue there is a curtain and behind it are all the scrolls 20 of them

o                                                        today we went on another field trip but today we went to a cathedral which is Christianity when we got there we had to sit down on the field and wait till Shane told u that we could come in and sit down. When the priest came he started explaining from the beginning of the bible and explained about some things that were set up.

I learned that the bishop who is the man in charge has to carry a crook wit him when he walks around.

I understand that there is a eagle and the wings are out, one side is for the jus and the other side is for Christians

At the end we got to ask questions

Today in UOI our art teacher Ms. Rachel came in to help us because the central idea for our UOI relates to art.

So when Ms. Rachel came we talked about how this unit relates to art. After the discussion, she laid out a bunch of photos like piercing,tattoos,facepainting and hennas. We the students had to pick a topic that we would like to do a research project on which is our mini exhibition project. I chose to do face painting because I don't know allot about it so we then had to see who else chose the same topic. When we got with our groups we thought that they were to big so we had to split them into two. When all that was done we talked about how to share the information at home or at school and we all decided to use stixty its a computer tool. We all had to come up with a password for each group. When we all chose our passwords we started our research
 
o                                                        Today my class had a field trip to a Hindu Temple. First we went upstairs and took our shoes off. After that we went inside the temple and we saw people praying and doing their thing. We all sat there for 15 min writing in our, I believe journal. After that we saw the priest and he explain alot of things to us about Hinduism

I learned that there are 330 million Hindu Gods

I Understand that when you ring the bell inside the temple it is like you are going over to their house to give them a bath with milk or water (thats what they really do)
