This week we did and learned about Aztec sacrifices.
We got to watch a video about the sacrifices and why they killed them,what for and when. After we got sheets about temples,sacrifices,after and why they did it,after we had to right it down on a piece of paper and share to our group.
I learned that fat,ugly,stupid,old and people with scars wouldn’t get sacrificed but healthy, good looking, fit, young people would get sacrificed and that they would sacrifice a person every day because they thought if they didn’t the sun wouldn’t come back up and that the god would destroyed the world.
I thought it was stupid and sad why they sacrificed young healthy people every day.

On Wednesday, we all learned about Aztec gods and goddesses. There were lots of strange gods. We learned about 5 of them and we had to create some gods or goddesses with their own power. I made a goddess and so did my friends.

On Wednesday the 12 of November, we learned quite a lot about Aztec gods. Huitzilopochtli is the god of war, Tlaloc it the god of rain, Chantico is the goddess of fire and Patecatl is the god of healing.
After we looked at gods and goddess we made our own god or goddess it was really fun and colourful.

On Wednesday the 12th of November we learned about the Aztec Gods. The God Of War is called Huitzilopochtli, Tlaloc is the God Of Rain, Chantico is the Goddess of Fire and Patectl is the God Of Healing. I like Patecatl mostly because of his name!
After we looked at the gods we got to create our own Gods! I made mine the God of Rocks, Stone, Ores, Lines and Circles!

On Tuesday afternoon we all made Ojo de Dios ( gods eyes ) which were the aztecs version of dream catchers.
We had to weave them. First we stuck two lolly sticks together with blue tack in a cross shape. Then we had to get coloured wool and wrap it around the sticks in a complicated way. (I don’t know how to explain!!!!!)
We are doing aztecs this term for our topic so that is why we did them.
We are doing them at golden time in 10 minutes!!!!!
On Tuesday we did some weaving using lollipop sticks and wool. They are called Gods Eyes or in spanish Ojo de Dios.
