Exploring the Ancient Cultures of Latin America!

February 21, 2018

In Spanish class we are learning about the Ancient cultures. The students are learning about many of the different cultures in Latin America, including the Aztecs, Mayans, Olmecs, Incas, etc. The students compared and contrasted the practices from the past and how they are similar or different in the present.

Some students have commented that it is amazing to see all the ruins constructed in the past and how the ancient civilizations were able to build them without the modern construction machines we have now, and how perfect they were built to become solid and be preserved for thousands of years.

Students reflect on the importance of learning about their descendants and the treasures we have in the museums from the past, something we can admire in pictures or websites of the museums. In Spanish our next unit will be based on the ancient civilizations from Spain.
