Culture-Quarter 2 By: Renz Breen
Feel free to pause the video to read some of my extra long paragraphs...
Essential questions 1-3
1. What makes up a society's culture? There are many things that make up a society's culture, but here are three that i think are important, Religion, Language, and Food. I think food is important because when you travel to any place, other than a city that neighbors your own, they most likely eat differently. In Maine they might eat and drink warmer foods because it tends to be cold up there, but it Arizona they might eat lots of colder foods because it is typically hot down where they live. I think religion is important because when you travel, especially out of the country, normally different continents or countries have different belifs or traditions, which indicates that they have a different religion. And I have to admit, it is embarassing when you say or do something and another person is offended by it because they have a different religion. And I think Language is especially important becuase you might be traveling, or someone else might be, and if you or them have a question it would be nice if you could understand what they were saying.
2. Why is it important to know how others live around the world?
I think it is important to know how others live around the world because when you travel other places might have different cultures, traditions, currency,food, etc. And if you don't understand these things, it could be embarassing, and hard to develop to the culture that they have.
Why is it important to respect others beleifs?
It is important to respect other's beleifs because if you don't others might not respect you or your beleifs and they might not want to be friends with you or not want to hang around you. Different religions effect what peoplesay and do. And it can be very humiliating and very rude when you disrespect others and do not respect their beleifs.
Learning goal #1
Human Characteristics of the Egyptians Language: The egyptians speak Modern Standard Arabic. Modern Standard arabic was/is the modern way of writing and speaking in Egypt. Education: In Ancient Egypt many kids did not have an education, or have a very good one. Mainly the richer families were the ones who had an education. Religions: Divine Kingship was the releigion that the ancient egyptians beleived in. Divine Kingship includes the fact that every pharoh, is a god.
Learning Goal #2
Evalute how the needs of individuals are met by, families, friends, groups, and organizations. The needs of individuals are met by families because your parents and aunts, uncles, etc. provide things for you, even if they are not your legal guardian. They still might provide differnet needs for you. Friends help you because you can depend and trust a friend and if you need help they will most likely help you with what you need. (if they can) Grops/organizations help you because they are purposly created to help provide the things that you need to live, clothing, sheler, food, etc.
Learning goal #3
Describe how cultural traditions, human actions, and institutions affect people's behavior. It can affect people's behavior because, 1) Different religions affect what you can and can't do. 2) School and education might affect your perception of things. 3) Family traditions might affect what you cancel/miss.
Learning Goal #6
Examine the river civilizations, Ancient Egypt, and India.
India: Religion, and culture. Religion: India has four religions, Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Buddhism. Hinduism; Hinduism is the most dominant religion in India. Jainism; Jainism is an Indian religion that prescribes a path of non-violence towards all living beings and focuses on spiritual independence and equality between all living things. Buddhism; Buddhism is an Indian religion that beleives in the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama. Sikhism; is a monotheistic(beleives in one god.) religion founded during the 15th century in the Punjab region of the India, by Guru Nanak. Culture: India's culture has many different parts but in my opinion, the three main parts would be their cuisine, their drama (dance, music), and theirathleticism/sports.
India's Athleticism: India's national sport is field hockey. In 1975 they won the men's field hockey tournament and won 8 gold medals in the olympics. India's cuisine: India is known for spicy foods and many ingredients in their food. Some reipes can consist of over 15 different ingredients making their food as diverse as the copuntry itself. India's theatre/drama: India's theatre/drama's history goes far back. Kalidasa's plays like Shakuntala and Meghadoota are some of the older performances following those of Bhasa.
Ancient Egyptian's culture 1) Burial Traditions:The egyptians would mummify the bodies and for pharoh and their family, they would have a burial "celebration" and put food in the pyramid for their afterlife. 2) Their religous beleifs:Divine Kingship was the releigion that the ancient egyptians beleived in. Divine Kingship includes the fact that every pharoh, is a god. 3) Cuisine: The Egyptian's cuisine was very simple, beer/wine bread, and some fruits. The fruit was normally grapes.
