Day 133: Incan Society (4/19/2012)

Standard: 7.7.1. Study the locations, landforms, and climates of Mexico, Central America, and South America and their effects on Mayan, Aztec, and Incan economies, trade, and develop­ment of urban societies.

Aim: The historians of 2017 will be able to compare and contrast Inca society with modern day United States. 

1. Submit your homework from last night here.

2. Quick Question: Imagine if you were there. You are an Inca nobel. One day, you travel with the king and the army take over new lands for the empire. There is a bloody battle, and you win a major victory. You want to make sure that later generations know about this important event, but your language has no written form. How will you pass your knowledge of history? 

3.   Open your Cornell notes from yesterday and complete the sections for afterlife, government, and society.

4. Listen and participate in Mr. Sanders' discussion on Inca society and Social structure. If you want to see the slides he used in his presentation, you can click here.

5.  In order to complete the activity you need to make a copy of this double bubble graphic organizer. Compare and contrast what you learned about Inca society with what you know about our society and social structure in the United States.

When you finish your double bubble mind map, post it to your history portfolio.

Homework: Read more about the Incan social structure and complete these reflection questions.
