Last Friday we continued our study of the Mayas and Aztecs by celebrating with chocolate. These civilizations were some of the earliest to discover the virtues of chocolate, although they drank theirs mixed with water, and chili added in. It is rumored that Montezuma drank up to 50 cups a day! We however, settled for just a few bars, and in one case some chocolate cake. We will continue our study of Latin American to the end of the school year, and right now are learning about the Incas of South America. This is a fun unit of study which is focused closer to home on the Americas.
Below are pictures of some students enjoying Chocolate Day.
