  • Note Understanding Holy Week: A Guide for Elementary School Teachers was posted.

    As educators, it's essential for us to be aware of and respect the diverse cultural and religious backgrounds of our students. With Holy Week approaching, it's an opportune time to deepen our understanding of this significant observance in the Christian faith, and how we can create inclusive and respectful classroom environments for all our students.

    Holy Week, also known as Passion Week, is the week leading up to #Easter Sunday, commemorating the final days of Jesus Christ before his crucifixion and resurrection. For Christians around the world, it is a time of reflection, prayer, and devotion.

  • Note Unraveling Earth's Circumference: The Ingenious Method of Eratosthenes was posted.

    In ancient times, when the concept of a spherical #Earth was still taking root, #Eratosthenes, a polymath from ancient Greece, made a groundbreaking discovery that revealed the Earth's circumference. Born in Cyrene (modern-day Libya) around 276 BCE, Eratosthenes' contribution to #geography and #mathematics remains unparalleled.

    Eratosthenes' method for measuring the Earth's circumference was both simple and ingenious. He noticed that on a specific day each year, the summer solstice, the Sun would cast no shadow on the town of Syene (now Aswan, Egypt) due to its proximity to the Tropic of Cancer. However, in #Alexandria, a city to the north of Syene, a shadow was still cast by a vertical object such as a sundial or a vertical stick. Eratosthenes realized that this difference in shadow angles could be used to calculate the Earth's circumference.

    Using basic #geometry, Eratosthenes measured the angle of the shadow cast in Alexandria and the distance between Syene and Alexandria. By
