Item description

SAVE MONEY with this complete hands-on unit bundle on ancient Aztec history with over 100 pages, packed with fun activities, a sample lesson plan, wall posters, research organizers, word wall cards, art projects and more!

You’ll find lots to support you, with colorful wall posters and word walls, introductory PowerPoint slides to get the children thinking about how historians find meaning in artifacts, focus question cards with easy to read information on the back, exit tickets and assessment tasks, and helpful booklists and websites for your class to use.
