What educators are saying

This resource was a lifesaver at the end of the last school year. I needed a digital unit that would be both engaging and to the point and it provided all of that. Thank You!
The perfect way to (unfortunately) push through this unit before state testing. Comprehensive, quick, engaging.

This digital resource for teaching African and Mesoamerican civilizations features 11 fully-editable interactive pages using Google Drive! These cover the Maya, Aztec, Inca plus Ghana, Mali, and Songhai Empires with a variety of links, graphic organizers, and more!

While it may seem off to bundle African civilizations with those in the Americas, this is how a lot of World History standards are grouped! :)

These super-engaging pages can be completed all online with laptops, tablets, or any other device that supports Google Drive!

Topics covered in these pages include:

  • The Aztec Empire
  • The Inca Empire
  • Comparing the Maya, Aztec, and Inca
  • Great Zimbabwe and the Shona people
  • The empires of Ghana, Mali, and Songhai
  • The Olmecs, Zapotecs, and early Mesoamerican civilizations
  • Characteristics of the Mayan Civilization
  • A timeline of African and American civilizations
  • Vocabulary activities and more!

Students use the dozens of included links to research, then type directly on the pages, insert images, and drag and drop information for a variety of engaging, interactive activities! This is a fantastic way to integrate technology into your classroom and can be completed without printing any paper! Awesome for a 1:1 school or just a trip to the computer lab.

There are now two different versions of the complete set of pages included with your download! One set is the traditional-looking vertical version of the pages. The other is a a new horizonal version better designed for Chromebooks. BOTH are included here for you!

An answer key for all 11 pages is included along with 2 pages of teacher directions. All you only need is a Google account and you're ready to go!

This digital notebook set can also be downloaded as part of my complete unit plan on African and Mesoamerican civilizations here.

Thanks so much for looking!
