May 2014 – Near the end of the school year, Drew’s class was reading the story of Robin Hood. One of the activities was to complete a comparison chart between the Middle Ages and Today for a variety of situations. The answers that he gave in the chart were great, and even informative in regards to travel…who knew??!
|Dating and marriage||You didn’t pick||You pick|
|Washing clothes||Baskets of water||Washing machines|
|Travel||Horses (5 mph)||Cars (World Record 240 mph)|
|Money and taxes||Gold||Dollar bills|
At the bottom of the table, was the question What other differences can you think of?
Old – candle
New – Light Bulbs, LEDs (light emitting diodes)
Notice that not only does my boy love his electricity and various forms of lighting devices, he also realized that it was important to define LED in case the teacher was unaware of that particular acronym. Such a thoughtful young man!
