Term 3

Our Term 3 Learning Lift-off has started with a chocolaty flair. We tasted 4 different types of chocolate: white, milk, dark (55% cocoa) and extra dark (96% cocoa). Unlike the ancient Maya, the majority of the children were not great fans of the very dark, bitter chocolate flavour. We then learned about the importance of chocolate (Xocolatl) for the Ancient Maya and followed the Maya techniques shaping, coiling and smoothing clay to replicate their chocolate pots. We used tools to also etch the Maya god on the side.
