Getting Ready for Ancient Americas

 Important cities of the Mayan and Aztecs.

Students will be working as partners the last two weeks of school research the cultures of the Inca, Maya, and Aztecs.  They will be creating Weebly blog that will be kept posted through July.

Here are a few links that will help the students with their research after their topic is chosen.  Students will also be using nonfiction library books.  Students will have available iPads and the use of the computer lab to complete this project.

Presentations will be on Tuesday and Wednesday during the last week of school.
