HaPpY VaLeNtiNeS DaY

 

5TH GRADERS: Mayan Religion: Answer questions 1-10. You may choose which 5 questions to TTQA, the rest you may answer without having to TTQA. The Mayan religious practices involved so many ceremonies, so many Gods and Godesses, so many priests (ahkin). rulers (halach uinic) and of course sacrifices.

EXTRA CREDIT:

1.) Mayan Matching Activity

2.) If you could become Halch Uinic, what would your elaborate clothing and detailed headdress look like? Use colored pencils, crayons or markers to color your "uniform".

How many of you have figured out the name or names of the authors of your St. Valentine riddle?

 

6TH GRADERS: We missed many of you today for S.S. Hope those of you who left, you had a terrifric time at MVTV! Tomorrow we will spend time sharing your ideas about what countries make up the 5 regions of Africa. How close do you think you came?

6th GRADERS: We are FINALLY off and into Africa! YOU MUST have your textbook COVERED by Tuesday the 20th. You can use a book sock, a paperbag to cover your book. Some of you opted to take a map from our room - remember to USE it for your textbook.  Make sure your name is written on the inside cover. It is your JOB to keep this book free of pencil marks, doodles, etc...

Tell one adult the number of regions there are in the GREAT continent  of AfriCa- you may want to brag a bit and let him/her know that your group predictions were pretty darn close!

5TH GRADERS: We learned about the everyday needs of the Maya and how they depended upon numerous gods/goddesses to get through their days, weeks and months. We spent some time today talking about the everyday needs of 5th graders. This weekend complete designing your god/goddess - what will your god/goddess help you with?

REMEMBER: Your god/goddess MUST INCLUDE:

1.) An elaborate headdress. 2.) Arm and leg cuffs. 3.) Jade necklace. 4.) Skirt or cloth wrap. 5.) Ear cuff. 6.) An object. 7.) Tattoo. 8.)Skin color. 9.) Name of god/goddess. 10.) Explanation of what this god/goddess does. ["Mayan god of_____________"]. 11. Blue, green, black, red, and gold coloring.  Remember, a hat is not a headdress! Headdresses are detailed, complicated, and enormous.

 

6th GRADERS: We are FINALLY off and into Africa! YOU MUST have your NEW textbook COVERED by Tuesday the 20th. You can use a book sock (available at the school store) or a paperbag to cover your book. Some of you opted to use a map from our room - remember to USE it to cover your textbook.  Make sure your name is written on the inside cover. It is your JOB to keep this book free of pencil marks, doodles, etc...

Tell one adult the number of regions there are in the GREAT continent  of AfriCa- you may want to brag a bit and let him/her know that your group's predictions about countries included in each region were pretty darn close!
