Good afternoon to everybody!!
Sorry, I'm late. I thought that I could write my journal today, like we don't have Social Science class. My journal it was written and prepare in another SHEET of paper and now I'm going to tell us the Friday's class.
The lesson started when the teacher put negatives and positives marks while she look at the homeworks that she had commanded on Thursday for Friday.
The homework was about a summary of trade but the following information is the summary of Paqui. I think that is interesting. What about you?
TRADE: long distance trade developed a lot, mainly colonial trade:
- Traditional routes continued to be used:
- Spice route, controlled by Portugal.
- Precious metal route, controlled by Castilian.
- England and Low Countries bloke the Iberian monopoly an seized some Portuguese colonies in Asia. The Elglish seized India and the Dutch seized Indonesia.
- New route: triangular trade, linking Europe, Africa and America.
- Europe sold manufactured products to Africa.
- Africa sold slaves and gold to America.
- America sold colonial products to Europe (cotton, sugar, tobaco, cocoa...)
After resolve the dudes about this information we have stopped the class because we have copied in our glossary a new word; rum that means "ron". We have stopped the class because we have tell to Paqui one patetic thing that happened to Jorge.
Then Paqui has continued with her class and she has saw us an animate map. The map was about the triangular trade routes but didn't speak and the teacher explain us where were destined those products.
When we have finished the teacher has put one or two questions about this map. Also she has saw a map in which we can practice.
Paqui has recommended us that we have to see the film "Dances with wolves" that is about the destruction of the aberindian. She says that is very interesting and the music is so beautiful, but I don't like western films... Dances With Wolves is produced by, and starring Kevin Costner.
For finished the lesson we have started the second point of the 17th century: Politics.
The teacher needs 4 blackboards each day hahahaha!
See you on Tuesday!
