Buckeye Room Bulletin
This week we went back in time and took a look at Ancient Greece and talked about Greek Mythology. The Greek Gods hung out on Mt. Olympus and we learned the King of all Gods was Zeus and if you made him angry he had a lightning bolt in his hand that he would throw at you. Zeus had a wife named Hera and she was the Goddess of Marriage. If you were a sailor you dare not make Poseidon angry because he was the the God of the Seas and held a trident (a fork like spear) in his hand. Zeus had a brother that he sent to the under world and that God was named Hades. Hades had a pet that was a three headed dog named Cerberus. We also learned about Pan and Medusa.
Did they call each other this morning?
Did you know (How does this affect my diet)?
The word “pound” comes from ancient Roman when the unit of measure was libra pondo, which meant “a pound by weight.” The English word “pound” draw from the pondo part of the phrase, according to the BBC. However, the abbreviation “lb” is derived from the libra part of the word.
