Fun and work, religion, and the calendar are all on the agenda, as well as weapons and warriors. Finally, the conquest of the Aztec and the takeover of Mexico by the Spanish and Hernan Cortes wrap up this unit of study. Each lesson takes 1-5 days to cover, making this a comprehensive unit which includes original articles, multiple foldable crafts, cloze notes, maps, and lots of opportunities for writing and creative expression.
