Samurai History in Japan Origins of the Samurai: The samurai, a class of highly skilled warriors, gradually developed in Japan after the Taika reforms of 646 CE. The reforms included land redistribution and heavy new taxes, meant to support an elaborate Chinese-style empire. As a result, many small farmers had to sell their land and work as tenant farmers. Meanwhile, a few large landholders amassed power and wealth, creating a feudal system similar to medieval Europe's.

How Do We Know the Babylonians Traded? In this activity, students refer to a natural resource map of the region to learn the source of materials for Old Babylonian artifacts reviewed online. Mesopotamia, a hot, dry region subject to floods, became fertile enough to produce a surplus of grain thanks largely to a system of canals first built perhaps a thousand years before the Old Babylonian period. In this way, agricultural products became available for trade.

Stormia - Live hi-res weather radar map for {city}, United States Forecasted data is based on the HRRR model from NOAA, which is real-time 2 miles resolution, hourly updated, cloud-resolving, convection-allowing atmospheric model, initialized by 2 miles grids with 2 miles radar assimilation. Radar data is assimilated in the HRRR every 15 min over a 1-h period adding further detail to that provided by the hourly data assimilation from the 8 miles radar-enhanced Rapid Refresh. For real-time data we are ingesting radar data every 15 minutes, together with lightning strike measurements and satellite imagery.

Shoguns of Japan Timeline The arrival of a Dutch trading vessel, the Liefde, greatly unsettles the Portuguese and Spanish merchants in Japan. The vessel's pilot, William Adams, is an Englishman of wit and charm. He is escorted to the powerful warlord, Tokugawa Ieyasu, where he reveals the lies peddled by Jesuits about religion in Europe. Ieyasu is no less interested in the Liefde's canon, and it is possible that he uses them in battle later in the year.

Egypt's Pyramids: Monuments with a Message Activity 1. Messages in Stone Now that the students know where the pyramids are and how big they are, ask them what these great structures tell us about the ancient Egyptians by observing and analyzing the following tomb artifacts from University of Memphis Museum Fifty psychological and psychiatric terms to avoid: a list of inaccurate, misleading, misused, ambiguous, and logically confused words and phrases “If names be not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things.” (Confucius, The Analects) Scientific thinking necessitates clarity, including clarity in writing (Pinker, 2014). In turn, clarity hinges on accuracy in the use of specialized terminology. Clarity is especially critical in such disciplines as psychology and psychiatry, where most phenomena, such as emotions, personality traits, and mental disorders, are “open concepts.”

The Big Human Timeline Introduction This is a very simple idea, using students to create a human timeline – one student per century from the birth of Christ to today. This human timeline then becomes the vehicle for exploring wide range of aspects of chronological understanding – there’s over 20 ideas below and if you think of any more do let me know and we’ll add them in. What we can do with this is really only limited by our imaginations. While this is a simple idea in its conception it can be developed to tackle quite complex ideas – which is partly why I’ve not tried to divide this up into activities for KS2, KS3, GCSE or A level. Many of the ideas could be used at several levels so you’ll have to read through to sort out what may be useful to a particular age-group.
