Rivendell Middle Kids

Aztec Jade Serpent

The Middle Kids have been learning about the ancient civilizations of the Maya, the Inca, and the Aztec. Today we learned how important precious stones like jade, turquoise and malachite were to the Aztecs. This jade (or turquoise) serpent is one of the most iconic symbols of Aztec art. The kids started creating their own jade serpents today!
