Buddhism handout

Buddhism handout

Buddhism Buddhism has influenced Asian religion, society, and culture for over 2,500 years. Today, most Buddhists live in Sri Lanka, East and Southeast Asia, and Japan. Buddhism consists of several different sects. A religious sect is a group within a religion that distinguishes itself by one or more unique beliefs. Buddhists are united in their belief in the Buddha’s teachings, known as the dharma. Because the Buddha is said to have “set in motion the wheel of the dharma” during his first sermon, his teaching is often symbolized by a wheel, as shown above. The Buddha taught that the key to happiness was detachment from all worldly goods and desires. This was achieved by following the Noble Eightfold Path, or the Middle Way, a life between earthly desires and extreme forms of self-denial. Ritual Women in Rangoon, Myanmar, sweep the ground so that monks can avoid stepping on and killing any insects. Many Buddhists believe in rebirth, the idea that living beings, after death, are reborn and continue to exist. Buddhists believe that all living beings possess the potential for spiritual growth—and the possibility of rebirth as humans. Leadership Those who dedicate their entire life to the teachings of the Buddha are known as Buddhist monks and nuns. In many Buddhist sects, monks are expected to lead a life of poverty, meditation, and study. Here, Buddhist monks file past shrines in Thailand. To learn humility, monks must beg for food and money. Worship Practices Statues of the Buddha, such as this one in China, appear in shrines throughout Asia. Buddhists strive to follow the Buddha’s teachings through meditation, a form of religious contemplation. They also make offerings at shrines, temples, and monasteries.

Ancient African Iron working worksheet

Ancient African Iron working worksheet

African Ironworking Refining metal was an important technological advance in every civilization. Africa was no exception. Iron tools were stronger than copper or bronze tools, so iron tools and the technology to produce them were very valuable. Producing iron began by mining the iron ore. The iron itself was bound up with other minerals in rocks. The trick was separating the iron from the unwanted minerals. That was the function of the furnace shown below. This process is known as smelting. 1. Layers of iron ore were alternated with layers of charcoal fuel inside the furnace. Temperatures inside the furnace would reach about 2000º F. 2. A tuyère (twee•YAIR) was a clay pipe that allowed air to flow through the furnace. 3. The bellows—usually made out of an animal skin with a wooden plunger attached— increased air flow in the furnace, thus raising the temperature. 4. The intense heat would cause a chemical reaction, separating the iron from the impurities. 5. The iron would collect and form what is called a bloom. After cooling, the bloom was removed. An ironsmith then worked the bloom into the desired too l or weapon. Questions: 1. What advantages would iron tools give a civilization? 2. Comparing and Contrasting Use the Internet to research the history of modern ironworking techniques. What improvements have been made, and how do they benefit our life today?

Advanced Technology during Ancient Civilizations: Phoenician Sailing, Bronze from Shang China DBQ

Advanced Technology during Ancient Civilizations: Phoenician Sailing, Bronze from Shang China DBQ

Advanced Technology during Ancient Civilizations: Phoenician Sailing, Bronze from Shang China Background: New technologies gave the ancient civilizations new ways of solving problems. Some solved age-old problems—for example, the plow made it easier to till the soil. Some solved new problems. Egyptians learned how to embalm the bodies of dead rulers as part of their complex beliefs about life after death. Document A: Phoenician Sailing The Phoenicians traded throughout the Mediterranean Sea and beyond. They were the most skilled sailors of their time. The first ships relied on rowers and did not have sails. They also lacked rudders for steering. By about 700 B.C., though, the Phoenicians had made advances. They added long steering oars in the back and a single sail, which could catch the wind and move the ship forward. Captains came to rely on the sails, though rowers had to work when the weather was calm or when the wind was not blowing from behind the ship. QUESTION a. What is the advantage of having a sail on the ship? Document B: Bronze from Shang China During the Shang Dynasty, Chinese artisans grew highly skilled at making bronze. Bronze is a mixture of copper and tin. They made bronze weapons and vessels for religious ceremonies. Bronzes were made by creating pottery molds that were carved on the inside, in reverse, to leave the desired pattern on the final object. Hot liquid bronze was poured inside. When it had cooled, the pottery molds were broken. QUESTION a. What does the intricate detail of this piece suggest about Shang society? Overall Questions: 1. How do the ancient systems of writing differ from the way words are written today? 2. What role did trade play in the development of writing? 3. Which technological advances do you think were more important—Chinese skill in making bronzes or Phoenician skill in sailing? Why? 4. Technological changes have continued throughout history. Choose one area of life, such as land transportation, communication, medicine, or raising food. Using this textbook or an encyclopedia, find out what technology one of these ancient civilizations had in that area. Then identify technological changes in that area over the centuries. Create an illustrated time line to show how that technology has changed.
