Our Aztecs lesson plan introduces students to the Aztec Civilization, including its history and people. During this lesson, students are asked to look at the picture of an Aztec God and, based on what they know about the Aztecs, come up with the rest of the information about him themselves; they then compare the story they came up with to the real background of the god and compare stories. Students are also asked to research the Aztecs at home and choose an interesting fact that they want to stand up and share with the class, which they will then do at school, strengthening their presentation and public speaking skills.
At the end of the lesson, students will have gained an understanding of the Aztec Civilization.
