Spring 2018 Aztecs

What is the legacy of the Aztecs?
 
We will travel back to Mesoamerica, discover and learn about the Aztecs and their extensive empire. We will discover when and where the Aztecs lived, how they lived their lives and how the empire was defeated in the 16th century. The Aztec topic contains lessons across a range of subjects, including History, Geography, Art, DT and ICT. We will create masks in clay, cook Mexican recipes - corn bread, tortillas and guacamole and finally chocolate chilli cake. In ICT we will use a book making program to make books with illustrations, text, voice and photographs. In PE and dance we will interpret the stories of the Aztecs and in textiles we will create applique pictures with a variety of embroidery stitches.
