4th of July – ‘We The People’ – Engaging Activities

Posted on Updated on

Celebrate 4th July!

We the People

franklin 1 - CopyBenjamin Franklin, one of the leaders of the American Revolution said, “We must all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

He lived to tell the story of the famous victory over the British Army of King George III and the formation of the USA Government in 1789. Now, school students can recreate those exciting times with innovative music and drama resources from Amazing People Worldwide.

‘We The People’ is based on the first words of the American Constitution.  Those words are the defining anthem song featured and reflects the spirit of the revolutionaries, who changed the course of history.

This video link, ‘We the People’, is an excerpt from an educational video series that we have produced.Play demo button

The video assists teachers and students to have a more personal engagement and understanding of the important principles about the USA and Amazing Americans. They can be used in various ways, including school assemblies, drama classes, history and also character and culture education.  (We also have the Australian First Fleet and the British Cavaliers and Roundheads – covering other cultures and parts of the curriculum).
washingtonIn 1765, a group called The Sons of Liberty formed and opposed British rule without fair representation. It was the start of the American Revolution and the battles that led to the formation of a democratic federation.

Twenty four years later, George Washington, who had commanded the revolutionary army, became the first President of the USA.
Students learn by participating. In doing so, they develop a better understanding of history, geography, culture and conflict. Most important, they learn about themselves and grow in confidence.

‘We The People’ is an opportunity for students to develop their own abilities through drama.

fordIt is interesting to see how people like Henry Ford also developed their careers. He came from a poor family background to be one of the most successful American businessmen of all time.
tubmanLife stories such as that of brave people like Harriet Tubman a slave, are fascinating. How did she overcome those early, harsh days? They may be the exceptions, but America does have a habit of producing people who stand out.

On Independence Day, we remember and appreciate these wonderful Americans. They came from all walks of life, but they had the same drive and belief that they could achieve their dreams. Their dreams made a difference to the whole nation. From Colonial Men and Women, Politicians, Inventors, Entrepreneurs and Doctors, their stories are the foundation of America and you can bring them into your classroom.

Albert Einstein predicted this!

Posted on Updated on

Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879. He was certainly a genius! Even foreseeing that technology may overtake ‘common sense’.

‘FOOD FOR THOUGHT’ and CLASS DISCUSSION IDEAS at the end of article.

Wouldn’t we all rather see this little one engrossed in a book?


What do you do about over-use of technology both in the workplace, school or home?

We can all make a difference in any environment by:

  • Setting sensible and fair boundaries. Eg. use devices only during breaks, and no texting at meal times.
  • At home, encourage other activities. Visit a ‘game’ store and discover the new board games that are available now!
  • Find ways to show your family that it’s not a ‘parent’ thing, but rather social behavior that has got out of hand.

MEET THE MAN WHO SAID:

“I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.” Albert Einstein

Einstein, Albert. P - avatar

Whilst we do not agree of course with every word Einstein said, it does provoke thoughts about how technology interferes with some social aspects of our lives. We need to embrace our relationships without mobile phones constantly interrupting!


 

For teachers and parents:

CLASS DISCUSSION:

  • Once you have gone through this article, open up discussions about how we can help each other to be more responsible with the use of technology, but in particular, mobile phone use.
  • Ask them to be honest – what would they do if they had children of their own?
  • Have the class make suggestions on large posters and place around the room.

Amazing People Education: Are you thinking of becoming a Doctor? Women with can-do attitudes!

Posted on Updated on

Elizabeth Blackwell was born on February 3, 1821.

Doctor, reformer, educator!

EBlackwell2

She paved the way for women in medicine. 

Despite many rejections and criticisms, Elizabeth Blackwell persevered and went on to become one of the greatest pioneers in the development of health care for women.  She trained many female doctors along the way and her story is so inspirational.

It is accepted now that females may decide to study to become a doctor.

  • Can you imagine, the prestige bestowed upon Elizabeth when she became the FIRST woman to receive a medical degree in the USA?
  • Then to be named the FIRST female to be registered as a doctor in the UK?

It was no simple feat. Certainly, her work led her to be admired and revered. Elizabeth_blackwell_stamp

“Who inspires you?”  Perhaps Elizabeth Blackwell will inspire you in whatever you choose to do. We often lean towards people who have achieved their goals, particularly if they had to ‘climb over’obstacles in their way.

So, if you are interested in studying to become a doctor, here’s a ‘must-read’ story.

blackwell

To know and appreciate the background of women in medicine, gives you an insight into the difficulties they had to achieve their goals. Yes, many of us work and study hard today, but we have many pioneers to thank for the research and discoveries that we, at times, may take for granted.

We need YOU now, to forge forward developing new techniques and methods and possible new discoveries – as we know, there is always something to learn. YOU are now the ‘Elizabeth Blackwell’s’ of the future. Meet Elizabeth and let her be your guide to success.


QUESTIONS:

  1. Where was Elizabeth born?
  2. What was the name of the college that accepted her application to study to become a doctor?
  3. When she graduated, no-one would hire Elizabeth. Where did she go to practice medicine?
  4. When and where did she open her first practice?

Birthday of a humble peasant teenager who became a Saint!

Posted on Updated on

JOAN of ARC

Joan of Arc

  • Can you imagine, as a teenager, confronting a royal leader, let alone leading soldiers into battle?
  • What would the young people of today do when confronted with such unimaginable decisions?

Joan of Arc was born on January 6 around the year 1412. Only a teenager, when she led French armies into battle during the Hundred Years War, Joan of Arc (or Jeanne d’Arc), became a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic Saint.  Born a peasant girl with little education, ‘The Maid of Orleans’, persuaded the King and army leaders that there was a way to beat the English army, all based on a vision from God. She will long be cherished, as one of the most revered females in history.

On May 16, 1920, Joan of Arc was canonized a Saint. France celebrates this fearless girl with a festival in May each year and May 30th is her Feast Day.

Joan of ArcWe invite you to share this incredible, brave and fearless story from our on-line library about Joan of Arc as an inspiration to others. If your belief is strong, you will find the courage to take on the challenges that life puts before you. If we can learn from the amazing people who bravely gave up so much and fought for what they believed in, maybe we can inspire others to try that little bit more or work that little bit harder.

  • In business and the career sector, what can we learn from such courage?
  • How can we utilize these inspirational stories in the workplace and in schools?
  • What leadership skills are required to lead your team to success?

Managers, leaders, teachers and even parents – what can you do to enhance your leadership qualities?

Amazing People Education: Humphry Davy – no ordinary Chemist

Posted on

What is this?

Davy lamp 2

The Davy Lamp was the first electric light that enabled miners to work safely, in close proximity to flammable gasses.

424px-Coal_Miners_Drivers_West_Virginia_by_Lewis_HineThe primitive lighting used by miners above, with exposed flames, created a potential threat to their safety every work day. Many of our young generation are yet to find out more about the great inventions that have led to today’s technology. We have so much to tell them.

 Davy

A diverse genius – Humphry Davy  was born on December 17, 1778.

Best remembered for discovering chlorine and iodine, Humphry Davy made many invaluable scientific contributions to our world. Follow him on an amazing journey from impoverished beginnings to becoming Britain’s leading scientist and receiving a knighthood.  Humphry played a major role in encouraging a scientific approach to manufacturing and production, helping to improve many areas of industry.

BUSINESS/CAREERS

Our amazing scientists and inventors are perfect role models that we can learn from today. Businesses and schools can all generate excitement and inspiration for their staff and students by utilising these unique BioViews® to explore, learn and reflect on our historical geniuses.

bioviews

 

  • Create conversation  – how would Humphry feel having successfully researched and invented what he did? The significant factor to discuss is ‘he was impoverished and eventually received a knighthood!’ From humble beginnings, Humphry triumphed.  Take his story as an opportunity to encourage others to raise ‘the bar’, and strive to do their best – “You don’t have to BE the best, just DO your best.” The results could be outstanding!
