Hebrew - B, Mrs. Orit Yehezkel-Ruiz

Our students are about to embark on a new 3D project of their dream home. They will use a variety of materials to create a model that can be seen from a bird’s eye view. The model will include many different rooms and their furnishings/ appliances. Each room will be labeled and decorated to show its contents. The students will be graded both on the model and the oral presentation of it, which will be done in pairs. We will use some of our class time to work on it but some work will have to be done at home. In addition, we are in the midst of studying unit 14 in our program which centers on homes/apartments. We already introduced the masculine and feminine forms of the numbers and used them to describe a variety of homes. The students will examine Jewish texts from Pirkei Avot and from the Pesach Hagadda that have numbers in them. Next we will read an academic text that brings up different theories to explain why so many legends have numbers in them. We will zoom in on the origin of the numbers 3, 4 and 7 and see what most scholars say about it. Next we will look at Jewish commandments and customs that relate to these numbers.
