Lyle, Sue; Jenkins, Alyson
This resource packet includes a teacher's guide, reproducible student activity sheets, a simulation game: "Life with the Incas", and a poster. The resource presents a cross-curricular thematic approach to the United Kingdom's National Curriculum. The materials look at the Andes and the Andean people, the Quechuan, who live in the Peruvian mountains. The presented activities are divided in three sections. In section one, students focus on the geology and geography of the Earth and focus in particular on the mountainous regions of the world. The second section examines the history of the Incas who ruled in South America from the 11th to the 15th century. The third section looks at the descendants of the Incas, the indigenous peoples, living in the Andes mountains today. In addition to background information and sequentially presented activities, the teacher's guide includes instructions for using the supplementary materials, teaching points and interdisciplinary extensions, and recommended resources.
