Students read a brief account from the Aztec point of view of the arrival of Cortes, answer 11 questions, and complete a creative task. This would be appropriate for a unit on European Exploration in US History or World History. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Summarize the information provided by the map.
--Write a synonym for "pestilent."
--Why do you think the scouts explain at great length how much of what the Spaniards have is made of iron?
--Why do you think "despair conquered" Montezuma before any actual fighting broke out?
