Europe changed the most out of all of the continents from 500 AD to 1750 AD. Following the fall of Rome, the city-states began to organize, dividing Europe into country-like regions
In 1000 AD, Europe emerged from the Dark Ages following the fall of Rome. Countries have been formed, but they are certainly not stable, and the main ones are France, the H.R.E and England. In 1200 AD, the Muslims in Iberia have been pushed back, but still remain a rival to the Spaniards. Most of tension was fighting over which religion is the most dominant.
In 1453 AD, the Black Death swept into Europe, and according to some people, killed 1/3 of the population of Europe. There was also the Hundred Year’s War during the Black Plague. It was also the year where the city Constantinople fell by the Ottomans. In 1992, Columbus made his journey to the New World.
The whole region of the New World looks a lot like SE Asia and Oceania. Very little changed in South America until 1450 AD when the kingdoms and empires became stringer. The two main empires is the Chimu and the Inca Empires. Inca was the biggest and most strongest empires in South America before the European colonists came. The modern day Peru was known for its capital of Cusco. Peru is now known for the Incan city, Machu Picchu, which survived from the Spaniard invasions.
Around 1750 AD, the inhabitants of South America was mainly taken over by the Spanish and the Portuguese.
The Spanish controlled most of the Caribbean. Some of the region was overrun by rebelling slaves.
In North America, it was mainly inhabited by the Eastern and Western farming cultures. The Eastern farming cultures where known as the Hopewells, and the Western farming cultures where known as the Anasazi. The French took over what is now known as the modern-day Canada.
This is the last essay of the 7th Grade History year, and I am supposed to right a 2 – 3pg. essay.
The questions that my history teacher gave me are:
1. Summarize the developments in mainlaind Europe studied in this history year.
2. Tell the story of your favorite lesson or lessons and what you liked most about history this year.
Well I already summarized Europe, so here comes the story part.
Soph sighed when she said the last word. Looking at the children she said “Any questions?”
“Oooh, oooh, ooooh” said Jimmy waving his hands frantically in the air.
“Do you mean the Pirates of the Caribbean when you said Caribbean?”
“No, I meant the actual Caribbean not the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. Anymore questions?” said Soph, laughing softly.
“I got a question” softly said Angela.
“Yes, what is it then?” said Soph.
“Wh-” Angela cleared her throat and said again ” What is the Caribbean?”.
Soph bent down and grabbed her map and pointed at what looks like an island.
“This is the Caribbean”
“Is that the sea where the Pirates sail on?” said Jimmy pointing at the map.
“Yes” said Soph, unsure of which area Jimmy was pointing at.
“What is your favorite continent, Mrs. Reece?” said Dan.
“Hmm, I think it would be Oceania”
“That sounds like a girls name” bursted out Jimmy
“And why is that?” Dan said.
“It remains the most mysterious,” said Soph “nobody is sure what those statues are on the Easter Islands, plus what I found really interesting about them is that they used boomerangs as hunting weapons.”
“Boomerangs?” quizzically said Hannah.
“Yes, boomerangs! They used it so when they throw it, it would come back to them if they missed their target”
“Sweet!” said Bonjou ” Now I want one”.
“You could always go to the store and buy one” Jane said sarcastically.
“Anymore questions?” said Soph clapping her hands together.
“Yes, what is your most favorite character in history” said Dan.
“I think you mean person. My favorite historic person is Gerhard Groote” said Soph.
“And why is that?” Hannah said quickly, before Dan could say something.
“Well, he was the founder of the Brethren of Common Life school”
“He is the founder of a school” Hannah said clearly disappointed.
“Yep. That school lasted a couple centuries, even before his death and yet he only taught their for less than 10 years” said Soph proudly,” Plus he survived two sweeps of a plague that swept into the town that he lived in”.
“An-” Soph was interrupted by the recesses bell, and before she can say anything else, the children where already getting up.
“Oh well, I can answer your guys questions tomorrow” Soph sighed.
