We will be learning about the Aztecs, a group of hunters that lived in Mexico hundreds of years ago. The Aztecs used a Sun Stone Calendar. This calendar was 12 feet tall and 4 feet wide, weighing 24 tons!
First, students will draw their sun on a piece of paper using a pencil. Inside their sun they will draw different patterns.
Once drawn, they will trace their sun onto a piece of Styrofoam. Then they will color a piece of paper with chalk pastel. 3rd graders will start the printmaking process, they will roll black ink onto their styrofoam sun and then stamp the sun onto the paper.
