Kapadokya 1

The week after the Bayram (09 -11 October) you as a Grade 7 class are going to be visiting Cappadocia. While you are there you will be sketching different things for art class (the list will come later). This week in class we talked about interesting facts about Cappadocia.

I have a made a list of keywords to jolt your memories and also put a series of links over on the right-hand column under the heading Cappdocia for you to check out.

  1. Cappadocia (meaning of the word)
  2. Volcanic Tuff
  3. Underground City
  4. Troglodyte
  5. Christian
  6. Roman Empire
  7. Monk
  8. Fresco
  9. Pigment
  10. Pigeon
Each one of these words is a clue to some fact about the history of Cappadocia and therefore an interesting connection to art and architecture. Click on the words for more information AND visit the links over there ➚.
