back to early civilizations in the Americas: Maya, Aztecs, Incas

Welcome to 4th and 5th grade world history!  Why 4th and 5th together? The short answer is after lots of looking around the course material most suited to us is typically considered 5th grade *Common Core World History- so that is what we are going to do.  Starting with The Maya, Aztecs, and Incas.

We are beginning to work on the art of note taking.  
I strongly believe retracing, recopying, and doodles/art aid in recall and they are tons of fun!  
Her notes today are written on representations of temples and cities of the ancient.

(can you tell we are back in the school mood?!)

*old Common Core Standards found in E.D. Hirsch's What Your [insert grader] Needs To Know book series and not the new watered down (my opinion) visions spreading though the political and educational systems .
