The Inca are known for very special achievements. For example, they built great buildings in earthquake zones that have stood the test of time (better than some of our modern Chilean buildings) without using mortar! They also came up with a system to preserve food using geography as their advantage and even came up with a system of records simply using yarn.
In this lesson, students will all represent Inca government officials trying to come up to solutions to various challenges, which in turn will reveal the various Inca achievements. The worksheets are pretty self-explanatory for the students.
When students are finished, then you go over it explaining how they really resolved the challenges. It doesn’t matter if they did not come up with an answer that was historical. The point is that they thought it through and that makes them remember it better when the real answer is given out to them in the end. (Bloom’s taxonomy). By Creative Educator
