Site Teaching Modules What's New for KIDS?
Weeks of March 24 and March 31, 2003

  • March 28, 2003: Fences is South Africa Includes a coloring page of fences with barbed wire for Kids to interpret themselves as they color and change the drawing itself. Three samples on the file.

  • March 28, 2003: Copy of Guernica by Pablo Picasso, along with a collaborative painting done by groups of children on the same size as the Guernica painting, and with the theme of peace, reflecting Picasso's concerns. The painting done at a workshop in Chile is pictured, but the KIDS Guernica Site has many more examples to offer, from all over the world.

  • March 22, 2003: What's New for KIDS? For Weeks of March 24 and March 31, 2003 Started a new page for our kids to follow along with some of these discussions. Started it this week with a Jewish Museum of New York page on Camels and Caravans in Ancient Jerusalem. From there, I found sites that would let our kids have some of the fun, even if they can't make it to New York right now. More to come. jeanne

    Camels: March 23, 2003: Camels and Caravans: Daily Life in Ancient Israel You could prepare for a trip to the Jewish Museum in New York to see this exhibit. OR, if you don't happen to be in New York, you could settle for looking at their program guide and checking out some of these sites:

    • The New Jerusalem Mosaic This is a delightful site that offers information on Jerusalem before the First Century, and right on through to the present. It seems suitable for young children, as well as informative enough for older children. Link added March 23, 2003.

    • Jerusalem in Old Maps and Views
      Jerusalem en Antiguos Mapas y Vistas En espanol. This site offers Spanish as well as English, and offers an extensive set of maps and images from ancient Jerusalem. Best suited to children in Middle School and beyond. Link added March 23, 2003.

      The Madaba Mosaic Map on http://www.culturalresources.com The Madaba Mosaic Map "The Madaba Map is the oldest detailed cartographic document in the word. Made about the year 565 CE from over two million colored stone cubes, the map formed the mosaic floor of a Byzantine church in the biblical town of Medeba, today Madaba in Jordan. It depicted the Holy land from Lebanon in the north to Egypt in the south. Jerusalem, the Holy City, constitutes the earliest urban mapping known." (From Cultural Resources on Ancient Jerusalem.) Click on the map to see a larger version. Link added March 23, 2003.

    • Crusader Map of Jerusalem, 1200 From Maps of Ancient Jerusalem. This is just one view of a map, beautiful in its own right. Incredible colors. Again, the site is most appropriate to older kids, middle school on up. Link added March 23, 2003.
