Morning Verse  for School Year 2008/09 Semester 2
The sun is in my heart. He warms me with his power,
And wakens life and love In bird and beast and flower.
With joy I greet the morning sun
Who shines with love on every one
Who shines in the sky, on the land and sea,
And who fills me with light When he shines on me.
Good morning (afternoon) to you and Good morning (afternoon) to me.

Greece. Story of Zeus
Story of Zeus Part 1
Zeus was the king of Gods.
Zeus had a very jealous wife named Hera. He also had many children. They all had special magical powers.
The Greeks truly believed that Zeus, Hera, and all the gods were real.
Zeus was very special. The king of gods was elected. When the gods voted Zeus to be the king, Zeus remained king forever.
Zeus was the most powerful god of all. Zeus had many powers. He could throw lightning bolts.
Zeus could throw his voice, and sound like anybody. He could shape shift, and look like anybody.
Zeus had a quick temper, a big sense of humor, and lots of girlfriends. Zeus was not afraid of anything, except Hera, his wife.
Stroy of Zeus Part 2
Zeus' family.
Zeus had two brothers and three sisters. His mother was Rhea.
When their father Cronos died, the boys divided the world up between themselves.
Zeus took all of the heavens, Poseidon took the sea, and Hades took the underworld. Each was quite content with their selection. (to be continued)
Poem Zeus by Homer
He whose all-conscious eyes the world behold, the eternal thunderer sat, enthroned in gold;
High heaven the footstool of his feet he makes And wide beneath him all Olympus shakes.

Construction:
Building a Greek temple.
Story of Zeus Part 3
My name is Libon of Ellis. In the year 470 BC, I was asked to build a temple for Zeus.
I choose the location. Greece is a big place, with many islands, mountains and cities. I choose Olympia.
I need stones, lots of stones. The temple is 64 meters long, and 27 meters large. There are 34 columns on the outside and 18 columns inside.
I choose limestone, because it is cheap and easy to find. But it's not beautiful.
I draw a floor plan. 13 columns on each side. 6 columns on each pediment. A sanctuary in the middle with a 13 meters tall statue of Zeus inside, one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World.
Poem:
When we are men,
We hope to do great things- and then
Whatever we do, this thing we say,
We'll do our work in the very best way.
And you shall see if you know us then.
We'll be good and honest and useful men-
When we are men.

Story of Zeus Part 4
One day, Zeus saw Io, a lovely river nymph. "What a lovely young woman. " He fell in love. Zeus covered the world with some really thick clouds.
But Hera came in.  Quickly, Zeus changed Io into a cow. When Hera landed, all she found was Zeus standing next to a little white cow.
Hera said. "What a beautiful cow. May I have it as a present?" Zeus had to agree. Hera sent the cow away, but Zeus rescued Io and set her free.
When Hera heard about it, she sent a gadfly after Io. (A gadfly is a fly that bites.) "Moo moo," Io screamed, when the gadfly found her.
Io swam across a sea, hoping the gadfly would drown on the trip. Hera did name the sea between Greece and Rome after Io: the Ionian Sea.

Story Pandora Box
When Zeus was so angry at Prometheus for giving people fire, he was also mad at the people who had tricked him into taking the wrong bag of meat. Zeus got back at the people by making a beautiful woman, whom he named Pandora (which means all-gifts).
Zeus sent Pandora down to earth and gave her as a present to Prometheus’ brother, Epimetheus. Zeus told Epimetheus that he should marry Pandora. Also, Zeus sent Pandora with a little box; with a big lock on it (Actually in ancient Greek versions of this story it is a sealed pottery vase. He said not to ever open the box, and he gave the key to Epimetheus.
But Pandora was very curious about what was in the box. She begged Epimetheus to let her open it, but he always said no. Finally one day he fell asleep, and she stole the key (or broke the seal) and opened the box (or vase).
Oh! Out of the box flew every kind of trouble that people had never known about before: sicknesses, and worries, and crimes, and hate and envy and all sorts of bad things. The bad things all began to fly away like little bugs, all over the place. Pandora was very sorry now that she had opened the box! She tried to catch the bad things and put them back in the box but it was too late. They all flew away.
But the very last thing to fly out of the box, as Pandora sat there crying, was not as ugly as the others. In fact it was beautiful. It was Hope, which Zeus sent to keep people going when all the nasty things got them down.

--- shortcuts and tricks for multiplication and division
How to multiply by 10, 11, 100... Can I divide by 3?...
