Inquiring into technologies used in Ancient Civilisations

Our Gr 3 students have been investigating into Ancient Civilizations and how these past technologies shape our current technologies today. 

This week, we looked at the invention of the kite and how this shaped our modern day aeroplanes.  The students built their own kite using the first design.  It took Mo Di, an ancient philosopher, 3 years to research and create his first kite design back in 660 BC. 

Ask your child if they know other technologies from Ancient times that have been adapted and used today? Can you find examples here in Chiang Mai or in your home country?
