Welcome to the Academics weekly assignment for the week of November 6th, 2022! These weekly assignments will give our Professors the ability to showcase some of their lesson ideas here on the website. Each assignment will be posted for a week, in which everyone will be able to read about the topic and respond to the assignment prompt. This week's assignment is "Magical Cuisine - Water of Youth" created by Logan (LoganTheLamb).
The assignment is as follows:
Water rarely has any magical properties unless it is in a specific location, and this is true of Water of Youth. This water comes from the Fountain of Youth. This ‘fountain’ is a mythical spring believed to restore people to their youth. It is also known to have healing or regenerative properties if consumed or bathed in. It’s said to restore health and vitality or even grant eternal life. While legends of fountains of youth have been around since the 5th century, there is one well-known location today. Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon set out to find the fountain of youth, originally thinking it was on the northern coast of Florida. There, he received instructions to travel to the Caribbean Islands. Although he never found the mythical spring he was searching for, it is believed to be in Bimini. Bimini is the westernmost point of the Bahamas, and is believed to have “The Healing Hole”. This small body of water is believed to hold Water of Youth within it and was likely where Ponce de Leon was directed.
Imagine you’re an explorer searching for Water of Youth. Why are you searching for it? Where do you look? Do you find it? If so, what do you do with it?
