I walk onto the soft, marshmallow-like

bend down and touch the snow; it feels like cotton candy. My hands are so cold that I feel them tingling, like someone is poking needles into my skin. I quickly shove them into my pockets. I feel the light snowakes falling on my head, and then melting. I look around me and I cant believe how many trees there are. The ground is covered with snow. Its almost like when your room gets very messy and you cant even nd your oor. It feels like I am in the North Pole. I expect to see Santas workshop in the distance, working with his little elves. That is not what I see; I just see snow and trees, thats all.

snow. I take my rst step and my feet sink into the deep white blanket. I suddenly smell the strong scent of pine trees come into my nose. There is a crisp scent in the air. I smell the re that I made last night. Its the strong scent of burnt wood. I love that smell. It almost smells sweet and I smell a faint scent of honey. My lips are so chapped; I taste the blood from my lips dripping into my mouth. The pine tree scent is so strong, I can even taste it. I hear the chirping of birds ying around. I also see woodpeckers picking on the wood of a tree. The wind is howling, almost like a wolf calling for its pack. The squirrels are running around in the snow. I

1. The snowy mountains are very hard to survive in because it is very difcult to farm. We are like the Arabs because farming was not easy in the mountainous land. Farming wasnt easy in that mountainous land. Even in the plains and valleys, the land was rocky and water was scarce (Frey 249). The ground is all snow and it has no soil to grow vegetables and fruits. There are many challenges to making tools. Since there is baring weather and freezing temperatures make it harder, we must nd a solution or else our civilization will crumble and be destroyed.

to nd is water that is clean. Most of the snow has dirt and maybe even animal scatter. We would have to nd a way to make the snow sterile. Even though we could just melt the snow, it is very hard to build a re since the weather is bitterly cold. Sticks and wood, pile around us but how would we get the ames? Another question we have is how and where are we going to store our water? Until we nd a way to have puried water it is going to be very difcult to live in these conditions.

2. The next challenge of living in the snowy mountains is drinking sanitary water. Water is all around us in the mountains, but what we need

Part II - Proposed Solutions


If we want our civilization to survive, Chillapi has to be able to modify to the environment. We must nd a way to nd clean water and food to eat. A modication is a change made to the physical environment to suit a civilizations needs. An example of modication is instead of going hunting, we farm plants and domesticate animals. Hunting is very hard and it is sometimes really hard to nd animals. If you have a good environment it is easier to farm and domesticating animals is much easier. Even though the snowy mountains are a very hard place to live in, there are some ways we

can x our food problems. Instead of cattle, which need lots of at land for grazing, [the Greeks] raised sheep and goats, which can graze on the side of mountains (Frey 249). This is a good way to get a source of food in the mountains. Since there is no possibility of farming, we have to nd another way to eat a meal. An easier way to eat is to domesticate animals. It would be easier to domesticate animals because instead of spending hours to nd a source of food, we could just domesticate living things. It is very difcult to make tools; it is also hard to even nd materials to make tools. A way to make a utensil is to take a part of a tree branch

and sharpen it with a rock to make a spear. A different devise that could help us with grasping animals is to make a catapult and ll it with rocks or ice which could help us catch our food. Hopefully some of these ideas would help our civilization thrive. Even though we have all the water that we could ask for in the Chillapi Mountains, some of the water we cannot drink because it isnt sanitary. [The Arabs] conserved rainwater [in the coastal plains] in canals and reservoirs (Frey 78). This passage is similar to our civilization because this is a way we can receive water. We could always build a re and melt the snow, which makes it sanitary. It would be very tough

Canepa, Lauren Monday, March 10, 2014 11:05:29 AM Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:c8:0f

and it would take a lot of work because the branches are frozen and its hard to make a ame. An easier to get a sterile water source is to look through the mountains until we nd a creek that is lled with a fresh, cold drink. Where do we store water? We could build a small shed out of wood that we have cut down from the trees and store our fresh water in the storage compartment. Water is a must-have in any environment; if we dont have water, we dont survive.

sembly met they discussed and debated new laws. Proposed laws had to be approved by a much larger group, the Assembly, (Frey, 261.) Mostly everyone could vote on laws and debate whether or not some the laws were fair. ! There are many things that we can learn

Council of Elders. Like Athens, Sparta had an assembly. But the important decisions were really made by a much smaller group called the Council of Elders, (Frey, 265.) Other than the Council of Elders no other citizens could have a say in laws. I do not like how they make the rich richer and the poor poorer because I think that is unfair. I like the idea of The Spartan Assembly because everyone can talk about the new laws that are being made. ! The Romans had smart ways to form the

from Sparta to help our civilization thrive. They used the form of government called Oligarchy. Oligarchy has a few things that are good but I think most of their ideas are poor. Something that I do like about oligarchy is that people have a small say in making laws. They had 2 kings and 28 other Spartan citizens. The kings made the laws and the 28 men could only vote yes or no on the laws. That was called the
11
Canepa, Lauren Monday, March 10, 2014 11:05:29 AM Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:c8:0f

government. Their form of government was a Representative Democracy, which means to have just a few people represent the rest of the citizens and most people could have a say in

making a law. The Plebeians, (lower class citizens of Rome), had 10 Plebeian ofcials who represented Plebeians interests in the Senate. That was called the Tribunes of the Plebs. The tribunes spoke for the plebeians to the Senate and the consuls. (Frey, 320.) The Tribunes of the Plebs could veto or forbid any laws they felt were unfair to the Plebeians. I like this because even though the Plebeians were the lower class citizens they could still have a say in what is going on in their lives. They had something called the Citizens Assemblies. The citizens assemblies were made up all Roman males. They passed laws that affected the Plebeians (lower class) and the Patricians (upper class). They dis-

cussed about the Consuls; the consuls were made up of 2 leaders of the senate, who commanded the army and ran day-to-day affairs of Rome. They also talked about the members of the Senate; the senate was made up of 300 men who ran the government in Ancient Rome. They also debated about the Tribunes of the Plebs. I think Romes government had really great beliefs and most of their laws were pretty fair.

Burglars will pay or the damage done and you will be sent to jail for 2 years. V. If you bribe you should be punished by being sentenced to court VI. Leaders will give citizens protection if they do not their power will be limited. ! The laws that we have compared to the

ent. Many of Hammurabis code had to do with a very severe punishment. Here is an example; If a son strike his father, his hands shall be hewn off. This is very different from Chillapi because our consequence would be very less severe. An example that Hammurabis code that is much more realistic is this law; if anyone nds a runaway male or female slave in the open country and bring them to their masters, the master of the slaves shall pay him two shekels of silver. This law is the fairest out of the list we were given because even though they have slaves, I do not approve of that, they rewarded the person who is trustworthy and who brought back their slave instead of just keeping

Hammurabis Code and the 12 Tables are similar in some ways but they are also very differ14
Canepa, Lauren Monday, March 10, 2014 11:05:29 AM Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:c8:0f

the slave. The laws of the 12 Tables are a bit more just. A law from the 12 Tables that I nd unjust is this law; a dreadfully deformed child shall be quickly killed. Our civilization would never create this kind of law because we believe that there should not be inequality and even if people are unalike they should be treated the same and denitely not killed. This law I nd fairer; If you are called to go to court, you must go. If you dont show up, you can be taken to court by force. I like this law because if people do something wrong they should be sent to court to testify themselves and if they dont go just because they dont want to you should be taken to court by force. This is Julius Caesar

Part III - Political Leadership Lessons from Julius Caesar.


!! Julius Caesar

has taught the citizens a lot of important things. For example he did many things to help the poor. I like how he did many things to help the poor. For example http://media.npr.org/programs/morning/features/2007/dec/blo he

gave jobs to the poor, he staged gladiator contests they could watch for free, and he halted the extensive use of slavery in rural areas. He was popular among the citizens because he was fair and created good laws. These are photos of Julius Caesar.

Even though Julius Caesar did many good

things to the people he also got a little caught up in his power. For example when he rst started out as a ruler he wore purple. That indicates he was their ruler. He also wore red sandals which This is Augustus Caesarmade people think he had the most power over everyone and everything. Caesar did not remain in power very long because the aristocrats of Rome and many Senators feared that if Caesar's power continued, http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0 b/Augustus_Bevilacqua_Glyptothek_Munich_317.jpg the re-

is fair because some people do not want children ! Even though Augustus did many great things for his citizens he also created a few unfair laws. People who had no children or were living together but they weren't married had to pay more taxes then people who were married or had kids. It even got to the point where you couldnt inherit property or money. (The state offered rewards-such as political privileges and tax relief-to couples who stayed together and had many children, while unmarried adults and childless married couples lost the right to inherit money and property.) I am guessing that he inherited these laws because when he was a young child his father passed away and he probably didnt want anyone to go through what he went through. Even though I understand why he created these laws I dont think it or cant have children. ! There are many things we can learn from

Augustus Caesar because he did a lot of things for the citizens like build police stations and re departments to ensure safety. He even built a library so people had a place to learn. I think those are great ideas because it would help the community a lot. I would not like to use the law about the higher taxes on the unmarried couples and the people who have no children will not be taxed higher. Augustus Caesar was very smart and had many great ideas about how to have a successful civilization.

and Caesar would hand down his leadership to an heir. I think that Caesar should have payed more attention to his citizens rather than his looks.

Augustus didnt want to reach the fate of his adopted father (Julius Caesar) so he decided to please the citizens as much as he could. One of the ways he pleased the people of Rome was instead of calling himself Romes leader he would

Instead, he referred to himself as First Citizen.) Augustus built 82 temples and building new statues, theaters, and a large outdoor arena so people could enjoy shows such as (Chariot races, animal shows, gladiator shows, and more.) Augustus wanted the citizens of Rome to be safe so to make sure that they were he established a re department and a police station.

Empire:
! There were many reasons why the Roman

Empire crumbled but in my opinion there are only three main reasons. The three reasons why Romes government failed was because there was a decline in morals and values, political corruption, unemployment. A decline in morals and values was very bad because crimes and violence increased drastically and there was also 32,000 prostitutes in Rome. Some of their emperors wasted money on expensive parties where guests ate and drank until they became ill. Those were big problems because the crime rate when up and they wasted money on par19

70:56:81:af:c8:0f

ties instead of using that money for people who really needed it. Since people ate so much at those parties they misused the food which could have been used for people who didn't have food and were poor. Political corruption was also a big problem because Romans never created an effective system to determine how new emperors would be selected. Since they didn't know how to choose an emperor they usually would just sell the throne to the highest bidder. They also had a problem with assassination. Rome had 37 emperors - 25 of whom were killed. Choosing leaders by seeing how much they would pay for the throne is very stupid cause they might not know how to rule. The

people wouldnt even know how to lead so there government would fall apart. Since most of the time the rulers were assassinated the leaders were paranoid and would make decisions to protect themselves and not their city. The last reason why they had difculties controlling their government was the unemployment. Many farmers could not compete these low prices and lost or had to sell their farms. The cities were lled with unemployed people. Since the unemployment rate grew the crime rate did also. Many of the citizens were farmers so when they lost their farms they were very poor and couldnt afford food. The crime rate increased because the people couldnt afford

20
Canepa, Lauren Monday, March 10, 2014 11:05:29 AM Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:c8:0f

things like food, clothing, and water. If they couldnt buy them they would steal. ! Chillapi could learn a lot from Ancient

also make sure that he is armed with security so he will be safe.The steps Chillapi will take to prevent unemployment are to give people in our city the jobs they need and that the farmers are growing crops for a good price and that their good at their job. If they are not good at their job they will lose their farms and unemployment will start to form. If we make sure we do all of these things we can have a successful government and it will not fall apart like Rome.

Romes mistakes. We could prevent crimes if we make fair and strict laws that will stop prostitution and violence. We will carefully choose emperors and make sure they are loyal. If we have leaders like Nero and Caligula who wasted money and food then our government will collapse just like Ancient Rome. Romes way of choosing an emperor was very ineffective. The steps Chillapi will take to prevent political corruption are to make sure we have a good way to pick an emperor and make sure he makes the best choices for the citizens. We will

Impact of Belief Systems


! To create a successful civilization you need

believed in no violence, traditional marriages, and sharing. In Hinduism, the cow is respected as the source of food and symbol of life and may never be killed. ! Buddhas believed in the Four Noble Truths

a belief system. Many Different places in the world have unalike belief. One reason why having a belief system is very important to society. Hindus believed in karma and dharma. Karma is the belief that your actions will come back to you in your afterlife. If you are a good person you might be a higher status in your next life. If you did something bad you might be an animal or a lower class citizen in your next life. Dharma is to perform your duties according to your obligation. For example if you make a promise to do something and you don't do it you would have done bad dharma. They also
23
Canepa, Lauren Monday, March 10, 2014 11:05:29 AM Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:c8:0f

and the Eightfold path. The Four Noble Truths states that life is fought with suffering, we suffer because we grasp for things, we end this suffering it is not inevitable, and the way to do this is to follow the eightfold path. The Eightfold Path is: Right understanding, Right purpose, Rights speech, Right action, Right way to earn a living, Right effort, Right mindfulness, and Right concentration. If one does not follow the Eightfold Path your suffering will never end.

The goal of Confucianism was a just and

To Tell or not to Tell:

peaceful society. Confucius taught that society worked well when all people acted properly based upon their roles and their relationships with others. Confucius taught people that there were ve basic relationships: ruler and subject, husband and wife, father and son, older sibling and younger, and friend and friend. He also taught people to be kind, honest, wise, and faithful. Conscious would say do not do to others what you would not want done to you.

Since Karma is the belief that your actions will somehow come back to you in your later life they would think that Judys penalty will come back to her. They also believed in Dharma. Judy did not follow Dharma since she did not do what she told her mother something she didn't do. Judy would get what she deserved since she lied.

Belief System of Chillapi


In an effort to create a successful civilization, the people of Chillapi have established their own belief system. It shares similar religious beliefs and teachings with other world religions and helps the people of Chillapi live with strong moral values. Here are some examples:

same and loved the same. The other religion that had the same idea as Shantis belief is Confuzi. He taught his citizens Do not do to others what you would not want done to you. (Frey 208, Chapter 21) Equality will improve our society because if everyone is treated the same peo-

ple will want to be themselves, there will be less war, and more peace in Chillapi. ! Another religion we practice is Coley. Coley

15.) This will improve Chillapis society because less people will be hurt, there will be more happiness, and less war. ! Our last religion is called Ooshma. Ooshma

represents non-violence. The citizens of Chillapi will be made to follow the rule of non-violence because that way we can have a peaceful society. We will try to prevent behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something. We will practice this to be as peaceful as possible and to increase happiness of our citizens. Another religion that was similar to Coleys belief was Hinduisms opinion. Hindus believe that all life forms have a soul, so Hindus respect all life forms of life and avoid doing them harm. (Frey 148, Chapter

Canepa, Lauren Monday, March 10, 2014 11:05:29 AM Pacic Daylight Time 70:56:81:af:c8:0f

represents respect. The citizens of Chillapi will have to respect their elders, their peers, and their teachers. Respect is a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something and learn from their abilities, qualities, or achievements. We practice this so that people will have someone to look up to and have admiration for. Not only do we think respect for each other is important but also respect for yourself. A different religion that was similar to Ooshmas religion is Confuzi. He taught his citizens ve basic rela-

tionships: ruler and subject, husband and wife, father and son, older sibling and younger, and friend and friend. He showed that each people should respect and care for each other. Respect will help our society thrive because we need it to work together, have a peaceful world, and when people respect each other they tend to get a long better.
