Mesoamerica Codex Book Project
Our fifth graders have been reading about early cultures of Mesoamerica (Aztecs, Incas, and Mayans) in the Amplify reading series. Throughout the unit, students chose to read and research indepth about the cultures’ architecture, farming methods, or social classes. They paraphrased their notes and wrote paragraphs for each Mesoamerican group. Students now are in the final stages of the project and are creating Codex books (a certain type of Mayan book)to demonstrate their learning.
