Day 15 Slice of Life
In history we are studying the second half of the 19th century and yesterday we took some notes and discussed how society changed during that period, with new inventions, the industrial revolution and so many new ways of doing things.
I told my students they could spend the last few minutes of the class copying the picture of the man or the lady on that page, both beautifully dressed in their stylish Victorian outfits with crinoline and bonnet, frock coat and top hat. When I pointed to the picture in question, one of my students exclaimed, “You mean the lady dressed like a cake!”
Yep, that’s the one!
Today when I was checking another student’s notebook, I asked her why she had left half a page blank before going on to write on the next page.
“Oh, that’s for the cake lady, I didn’t get time to draw her yesterday.” Of course.
So I will probably never be able to look at one of those dresses again without wondering if it looks good enough to eat!
