Here’s a clever way to combine language arts and social studies. Shakespeare’s The Tempest is believed to have been inspired by the wreck of the Sea Venture on Bermuda in 1609. The class views a brief scene from Castaway in which Tom Hanks makes plans to create a shelter and find food. Viewers brainstorms their own survival strategies, and use coordinates to locate Bermuda on the map. They then compare events in the Sea Venture story to plot elements in The Tempest. Links and activities are included in the detailed plan.
Students map magnetic fields of a magnet using a compass and predict where fields cancel each other to create 'Bermuda Triangles'. In this magnetism activity, students use a compass to map the magnetic field of a magnet. They explain how magnetic fields can combine and cancel each other.
Young scholars, after researching, discussing and analyzing vernacular architecture in detail, answer a question and answer sheet, review an extensive vocabulary of key words, complete an activity sheet on the key words, and critique a painting of Bermudian vernacular architecture.
