Welcome back Kodiaks!!
Now we are back to school and starting new units in both Language Arts and Social Studies.
Social Studies: This week we have begun our journey into discussing the Aztecs. So far this week we have discussed an introduction to the Aztecs and how many European nations had turned from a Worldview of exploration for the purpose of discovering new trade partners and exchanging knowledge/idea to one of imperialism. This brought the Spanish to the Aztecs who mistook the Spanish for returning gods. Students will also begin stations in which they will gain a better understanding of the geography, history, culture, and lifestyles of both the Aztecs and the Spanish who invaded them.
Language Arts: This week we began our poetry unit. We started by looking at different figures of speech and different forms of poetry. We also discussed the importance of the title of a poem and began to play around with forms of poetry.
