Changes in How We Communicate

Today we start a new unit on ways to communicate. We will start in history and move toward the present to see how communication has changed and improved over time.

The first way to communicate mentioned in our reading is the feather or quill pen. This video shows you how it works. How are these pens different from the ones we use today?

Here is a closeup of the nib of a quill pen. (These pictures are from this site which talks a lot about how these pens are made and used.) How does it work?
