Need a way to use more primary sources without a lot of time? This is a great activity to incorporate Aztec codices into your Early American Civilizations unit. Students will work in groups to match the codex to its description. They are exposed to these sources without feeling overwhelmed. At the end of the activity, you can show the slideshow to share the correct answers and add additional details.
I recommend printing the pictures and descriptions on cardstock and laminating for durability.
-11 slide PowerPoint with answers in the notes
-10 codex pictures on 7 pages (print one set for each group)
-10 descriptions on 2 pages (print one set for each group)
-3 pages of answers with links for you to read for further details
