« Earth is King of the Jungle? | Main | Are people the king of the jungle? »



Hi again! (I thought I was done writing to the Class today, when I wrote "Have a GREAT weekend", earlier this afternoon!!)

"Also, like David, I wonder why people most of the time say king."

Well, that IS a good question, also!

It has been a pattern, and still is in some ways, that Males, or men, would be the Kings and Females, or women would be the backbone of the Kings. But there have always been exceptions to this rule, like Queen Elizabeth and the Queen-of-the-Nile, and Margeret Thatcher, to name just a few.

And if you've ever looked at how BEE HIVES look like, you'll notice this particular animal is very much centered around a Queen.

So there are more exceptions to this rule, than some have noticed on this thread.

Anyway, there's the old saying, "Behind every GREAT man, is a GREAT woman". But it has always been so that behind a great woman, is a great man, because they help each other.

Nowadays, in the United States and other places around the globe, what-is-called "labels" like "Male" and "Female" are EXTREMELY important to some people.

In my opinion, perhaps more than needed.

    Hi we are room 209. We are students in the Chicago Public Schools and we maintain this blog. This blog is a way of asking questions, writing about the things we are learning, discussing ideas from many sources, (books, blogs, letters, interviews) and reflecting on those ideas. Our teacher is Ms. H. You can e-mail her at the link on this page. You can comment on our questions or about our writing by clicking on the word comments at the bottom of each post. We are 2nd graders in the public schools so of course Ms. H moderates this blog for us. If this blog has inspired you and you want to leave us a comment please do so. If you want to talk with other adults about what we are talking about or if a comment you left here earlier has been moderated there is another blog about~209, which is this blog unmoderated.
