Calendars!!

The Julian calendar, introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 BC (708 AUC), was a reform of the Roman calendar. It took effect in 45 BC (709 AUC). It was the predominant calendar in most of Europe, and in European settlements in the Americas and elsewhere, until it was refined and superseded by the Gregorian calendar.

The Gregorian calendar. The Gregorian calendar is today’s internationally accepted civil calendar and is also known as the “Western calendar” or “Christian calendar“. It was named after the man who first introduced it in February 1582: Pope Gregory XIII.

The Roman calendar consisted of 12 months for a total of 355 days. The new Julian months were formed by adding ten days to the pre-Julian Roman year of 355 days, creating a Julian year of 365 days.

The Immigration Museum

On the 3/8/15 we went to the “Immigration Museum”.

We learnt about what Immigration means. People that have lived some were that have came over to here to stay and have a better life. They mite have came here because of Wars, bad environment, bad people or really sick and there place does not have the right medication to live with.

I learnt when you start getting grey hair you start getting grey hair at the age of 38!

 Pawlow is one of the migrants that came over to here because of a war he was Italian but he only spoke Toscan he lived in Florence he moved because of a ongoing war at the time he had to make a decision  either to stay in a war a fight or leave that country and go some were else and never come back he knew it would have been hard to do it but he did it for his family.

Now in our land people are still being racist to different colored skins because they are scared of them or they wont to be more dominate to intimidate people.
