Some sponge and ground lessons

Posted on: July 12, 2007

“Sir, what does a sponge mean in our lesson?” That is the most intriguing question that I received from my students since I announce that we will be needing “a sponge, a starfish, and a squid” in our lesson. Hehehe…

This week, I will allow them to enjoy my class, after a month of gruesome lecture, and map-readings.

That is by having a film showing of SpongeBob SquarePants episode “SpongeBob B.C.” This episode chronicles SpongeBob, Patrick and Squidwart’s journey as cave-sea creatures (Spongegar, Patar, and Sqoug). The gist of the lesson: What is the importance of Fire during the Pre-Historical people?

This 2-week lesson covers the evolution of man – biological, cultural, and technology. A far fetch to cover the lesson in just two weeks, when this lesson is usually prepared for three weeks. I do not want to cover this lesson for too long, since the lesson is a bit dragging for students, and for me.

For the reinforcement of the Spongebob clip, we will be re-enacting how pre-historic people survives the nature, through fishing, hunting and gathering. Also, we will have a week in the school/campus grounds to tackle the importance of river in the

This will be our first film showing for this school year, and I am planning more films/shows to show them. One show I am planning is the “Heroes” episode “Five Years Ago.” And the movie “Kingdom of Heaven” and “Gandhi”, if I find the copies of the said movies.

Last stop before the periodical examination: Mesopotamia, the ancient civilizations of Indian and Chinese.
