This term Cedar are exploring the ancient civilisation the Aztecs. The children will look at the country of Mexico and how it was the ideal environment for this interesting culture of people. Over the term we will research, design, question how the Aztecs became a great power of their time and how they were defeated many years later.
The lessons are based on the questions asked by the children at the start of the term:
Where did the Aztecs live?
What jobs did Aztecs do?
Are they good fighters?
What did Aztecs eat?
Did they have gods?
How were they defeated?
We are very excited to find out how Aztecs invented chocolate and looking forward to our trip to The Chocolate Story, York.
