Ancient culture immersion


Indian Lake fifth graders are learning what life was life in early civilizations by immersing in the ancient cultures. Heidi Hoffman, Alexis Whitt, Graysen Dowden and Hunter Gross use seeds and clay to simulate Incan terrace farming. The students are spending a few days performing activities that would have been normal for Maya, Inca and Aztec peoples. In Brian Tidwell’s classroom students are communicating in Mayan symbols for writing and mathematics. In Fawn Schulz’s room they are constructing Aztec temples using Legos and in Kelly Wagner’s class they are attempting terrace farming with seeds and clay and making quipas to keep records like the Incas. Wagner says these hands-on lessons really stick with the students and help them understand the roles people played in early societies.
