During the reign of Numa Pompilius, Rome was at peace. The new king, Tullus Hostilius thought that the Romans had grown complacent and were in danger of being weakened, so “he looked all round for a pretext for getting up a war.” At this time in Roman history, only the surrounding countryside was controlled by the city. It was not until later history, the time of the Republic, that the entire Italian Peninsula was governed by Rome.

Find from your source books examples of armor used by the Greeks or the Spartans and compare the merits of each. Draw a picture of an Athenian or Spartan warrior. If you can find some examples of Persian warriors of this period, include these as well. On the left is a Greek helmet that is similar to those used at the Battle of Thermopylae. Notice the dent at the top where the broad side of a sword may have struck the warrior. Greek History, Ancient History, Greek Helmet, Persian Warrior, Teacher Prep, Spartan Warrior

This device, coupled to the power of water, shaped a time of prosperity known as the Medieval Industrial Revolution. Water power tripping a hammer could be used by blacksmiths to pound and shape heated metals or by fullers to crush fibers to make felt or linen. This trip hammer was used to crush ore from mining or to pump water from underground, pound malt for beer, crush sugar cane, press grapes and sources of oil, pound leather in tanneries, and operate bellows in forges.

The mineral backbone of the earth falls into a great polarity between igneous volcanic sources and sedimentary limestone sources. In this study the students will learn how the geological terrain of the earth is formed through the study of volcanoes, the limestone cycle, metamorphic rock, and the formation of metals, coal, petroleum and chalk. Field trips to geological outcroppings and formations are encouraged. Charts, drawings, and descriptive narratives are among the many student activities.

It is a pity that in our modern city life, that so many people grow up knowing that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west and thus carry this naïve assumption through life. Such an assumption is only true if you live on the equator. In the northern hemisphere, the direction from where the sun rises and sets moves throughout the course of the year.

In this fascinating study the student learns of the intrinsic geometrical structure in many of nature’s forms. Throughout the centuries this discipline has been known as the study of sacred geometry. The student will gain facility with compass, triangle, and straight edge as he/she learns the structure and properties of the snowflake, honeycomb, nautilus shell, and human skeleton.

Use one of these as a model to form the six-fold symmetry of the snow crystal. Figure 10 describes one way to proceed. Notice that the student has created a beginning form in the most outer zone at point a, and then repeats this same figure again in the outer zone at point e. This same little figure will be repeated exactly in the outer zone at the remaining four points around the circle. Symmetry, Zone, Outer

Construct the six-divisions of the circle [with a radius of at least 2 inches] to find points a, b, c, d, e, and f around the circumference. Connect these six points to the center of the circle to form the six “spokes of the wheel” which are the six structural axes of the snowflake. Now draw several more (at least two) concentric circles within this original circle. Refer to the next page to see some field samples of snowflakes.
