PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

INFORMATION
The lesson provides enough information to give the students an overview of the three Mesoamerican cultures (Mayan, Aztec, and Inca) that existed immediately before the Spanish explorations/conquests of the regions of the Yucatån, Mexico & the Andes Mountain Range. I have focused the lessons on the cultures of each of the geographic areas. Of course, all three cultures advanced to empires but a common culture is at the core of any culture or civilization. The materials can be used in several ways. You can use, first, them as an introduction to a more thorough study of the cultures, second, as a short presentation of the cultures with additional information provided by the teacher, or third, as a quick mini lesson. The last one is great if you are running out of time and have to cover these groups before the end of the semester or year.

Includes
- Graphic organizers for each of the cultures
- a blank graphic organizer for student note-taking
- a form for organizing a side by side comparison of the three
cultures
- an enrichment assignment to further illustrate the likenesses and
differences of the cultures
