Norse Gods and Chocolate…

This is my project about the Greek, Norse and Roman gods that you might like to have a look at.  Just click the link below, and you will be taken to my prezi about it.  Once you are on the page, click on the arrow keys to flick through the slides.


Once I had finished that, Dad sprung another project on me: To find, and write in two sentences or less, the Maori gods of the same things!

Tūmatauenga was the god of war, like Ares.  He was also the god of hunting, food cultivation, fishing and cooking, he is the son of Rangi and Papa.

Tangaroa was the god of water and the sea, like Poseidon.  Tangaroa is also the son of Rangi and Papa, he is the father of the father of all sea creatures.

Tāwhirimātea was the god of the sky, like Zeus.  When all of the children of Rangi and Papa wanted to separate their parents, Tāwhirimātea did not, he went to the sky to be with his father, Rangi when they were separated.  

Hine-Nui-Te-Pō was the ruler of the underworld, like Hades.  She was also the god of night.

Te Ra was the sun, but Hineraukatauri was the god of music, like Apollo.  Te Ra was what the Maori called the sun, although there was no actual god of the sun.

Hineteiwaiwa was the goddess of childbirth, like Hera.  

Te Marama was the moon, but Tūmatauenga was the god of hunting, like Artemis.  Like the sun, there was no actual god of the moon, but Te Marama was what the Maori called the moon.

On a completely different note, I made some delicious chocolate biscuits yesterday, this is my recipe:


200 grams of butter

1/2 cups of sugar

1 egg

2 tablespoons of cocoa

2 1/2 cups of flour

Chocolate icing


Preheat the oven to 190° C.

Place the butter and the sugar in a pot large enough to hold all of the ingredients.  Heat until the butter melts and then leave to cool for 5 minutes.

Add the egg and beat really well with a wooden spoon.  Add the flour and cocoa and mix until combined.

Turn out of the pot and roll out before cutting into circles and bake in the oven for 12 minutes.

Once the biscuits are cool, but icing and sprinkles on.

The last thing to do is to eat them all before anyone else gets to them!  Yum!

These are mine:


See ya…
