Lesson Plans by Liane Hicks
Before the arrival of Christopher Columbus and other European colonizers, civilizations thrived in Central and South America for thousands of years. They built huge cities, massive temples, and vast networks of roads and bridges. They had advanced methods of irrigation, agriculture, and engineering. They practiced religions, were adept at astronomy and math, had languages, created art, and played games! The Maya, Aztec, and Inca Civilizations are often taught in conjunction with each other, though each has their own unique culture and contributions to the world.
