Classroom Ideas

Pupils could use the images of the Aztec temples shown in the clip as source material to help them construct their own models. You could task individuals and groups to make models of each of the buildings shown. Children could use plastic construction bricks, or build their models from cardboard. Group the children's models together to create an Aztec cityscape, like the one shown in the clip. The children could go on to find out more about these buildings, using a variety of sources of information, including textbooks and the internet. Pupils could add labels to their cityscape, to share what they have found out.
