Activity Overview


There are many interesting Incan cities, sites, religious practices, and leaders that students could research for a poster project. This poster focuses on the famous Incan city of Machu Picchu! Students will research this fascinating city and find at least four facts to fill in the bubbles. Then they can use the artwork provided to create a scene! Their finished posters could be presented digitally, printed out to add to a portfolio or hung around the room.

There are many poster templates to pick from if students wish to start with a different layout or complete their poster on a different topic. Teachers can add multiple templates to the example to provide some structure, or direct students to the template page to pick for themselves. They can also edit the existing template and add or remove art as desired for different scaffolding.
