This is innovation because in 1879, Thomas Edison created the light bulb, and over time, we have realized that there are many advantages to a light bulb, and several disadvantages to a candle.
Oh, it's a ceiling lamp, it provides light for us for whenever we need it.We turn it on just by a flick of a switch. The source of this light is a light bulb. It is much better than a candle in many ways.
Yay, music! I wonder what the history of music is!
Music has spread all over the world, and because of that, songs have been created.
A very long time ago, music was created, and ever since then, there had been several discoveries!
I think that the spread of music is diffusion because music has traveled all over the world, countries have adapted to this trait.
This clothing is not at all hideous, it's in style! It's what people wear currently.
I would think that this is assimilation because during the medieval times, people wore different clothing(ex. woman wore dresses). Today, people wear all different types of clothing(ex. men wear suits, women can wear shorts).
W-what is this clothing? It's hideous!
In America, we have Mexican food, such as the burrito or the taco. We have adopted their idea of the burrito, and started to make it here in America.
Hello class! Today we will be discussing an example of acculturation. Part of this example may take place here, in the school's cafeteria.
In Mexico, they have adopted the idea of America's burgers, and they started to make it in Mexico.
I would think that this is acculturation because in Mexico, they have used our idea of the burger, and started making it there. Also, in America, we have decided to start making burritos here that has come from Mexico.
Hmm..I wonder how football was discovered..
I think that this example is syncretism because since rugby was founded in northern England, and soccer was transisoined into the soccer that we know today because of England. In addition, rugby was a "spin-off" from soccer. These two sports have been combined to create football.
Football was discovered from soccer and rugby combined.
