solarsystemgif

We will continue to examine the Scientific Revolution as we look at other scientists & thinkers who impacted history through their investigation and discoveries. We look at the contributions of Brahe and Kepler in astronomy & mathematics and Vesalius & Harvey in medicine & anatomy. But we shall pay special attention to the contributions of Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton. Watch the video below in which the famous astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson talks about the importance of Isaac Newton.

This will be a short powerpoint and you will then work on a worksheet with short answer questions as well as guided reading questions, critical thinking questions(answer in paragraph form) and a timeline. You will then have time to work on a Guided Reading Organizer. If you have time then complete any missing work.  Links are below:

The Scientific Revolution

We will conclude the unit on the Age of Discovery with an examination of the Scientific Revolution. We will see that the same curiosity that was one of the motives for exploration also was one of the driving forces behind the Scientific Revolution. We will take notes from the Scientific Revolution &Scientific Method Powerpoint.

Scientific Revolution Guided Notes

This week a new movie will be playing at Perkins Rowe Theater on Bluebonnet. The movie is Victoria & Abdul. It tells the story of Queen Victoria who was until recently the longest serving monarch in British history. Victoria was so influential that her rule is labeled The Victorian Age. During this period the British had a large empire which spanned the whole earth. India was considered the jewel of the British Empire.

The movie tells the story of Queen Victoria’s friendship with her Indian servant Abdul I will give everyone who watches the movie 100 points provided they can tell me about the movie and can show me the ticket stub. See the trailer below.

Colonies, Mercantilism, & Trade


north_america_colonization

Last week we looked at the European colonization and the impact it had on the Native American population. Then we examined the slavery and the triangular trade as well as the terrible impact of slavery.

trade

Next, we will examine the changes that Exploration & colonization brought to the areas of trade and the economy. During the 1500s Europeans developed a new type of economic policy called mercantilism. Mercantilism believed that a nation’s strength depended on its wealth. Wealth was measured by the amount of gold & silver that a nation possessed and since Europeans believed that there was a fixed amount of wealth in the world then they thought that for a nation to become more powerful than it had to take wealth & power away from other nations. Mercantilism then led to competition & intense international rivalry.  The link to the Powerpoint is just below. Afterwards, you will read about the Triangular Trade and complete the worksheet.

The Spanish conquered a large empire in North and South America but the other European countries were not going to be left out of the race for riches and colonies. Next, we will examine the establishment of colonies by the other European nations.

Spain conquers an Empire


 

conquistadorImage result for conquistador

Next, we shall see that as Spain began to control their empire with the encomienda system. This was a system instituted by Spain whereby colonists were given land & natives slaves and in return, the colonist was expected to teach the natives about Christianity. Yet the system was disastrous for the natives as many died from diseases and overwork. Then we will see the conquest of Mexico and Peru by the Spanish as they build one of the largest empires the world has seen.

We will use the Powerpoint found through the link below
