This week, we learned about Central and South America in the Middle Ages. Aztecs, Mayans and Incans were all great weavers.
The Mayans played a game where they threw a ball through a hoop made out of stone. If a person lost, his head was cut off. We used a big embroidery hoop and tennis balls when we pretended to play the game. I didn't get my head cut off.
We drank Aztec hot chocolate. It tasted really good. We read the story about the "Sad Night" and Montezuma.
Quinoa is a grain that the Incans ate. We had it for lunch a couple of times. I sort of liked it when it was mixed with beans. We made knots on a piece of yarn to show how many times we did something. This was called Quipu by the Incans.
