Product Description
This is a bundle of two following lesson plans on the Aztecs.
Aztec Webquest
Aztec Spy Report/Writing Activity

The first lesson plan is a great webquest on the Aztecs from the following website:

The same website is used for the second lesson plan. Students will take notes on the Aztecs while pretending to be a spy. Students will write a five paragraph essay about the Aztecs. This is a great bundle, please check out my other lesson plans and read what other teachers have said about them.

Lesson 1

Students will gain basic knowledge about the Aztecs by completing an internet based worksheet. The following topics are covered in this Aztec webquest:

Daily Life
Social Classes

The webquest contains twenty-five questions and is a great introduction to a unit on the Aztecs. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The information for this webquest is from the following website.

Lesson 2

This activity is designed to allow students to write a five paragraph essay about the Aztecs in a fun and creative way. Students will use the following website to gather information about the Aztecs.

This website is very student friendly. The student handout will guide students through the five paragraph essay format. Each paragraph will focus on a different topic such as:

Daily Life
What the capital city is like

The assignment uses creative writing by allowing the students to take the role of someone spying for Spanish Conquistador Cortez. A grading rubric is included for the teacher.

I would like to thank Illumismart for the wonderful clip art.
