4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for children learning about the Aztecs, 23 May 2010
By 
Boo (London, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Craft Topics: Aztecs (Paperback)
The book is set out well with a combination of text, pictures and craft activities. There is information on the Aztec Gods, Tenochtitlan, Aztec temples, clothes, Aztec markets, crafts and the Spanish Conquest. There are also about 4 or 5 craft ideas, such as making an Aztec head-dress. Art and craft is definitely not a strength of mine but the activities look as though they are easy enough to follow...even for me! If you're teaching the Aztec topic, then I think this is one book which you could add to your pile of resources. Many Aztec books are too advanced for KS2 but this book is just right.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and colourful introduction to the Aztecs, 29 Oct 2014

This review is from: Craft Topics: Aztecs (Paperback)
This 32-page book is an interesting and colourful introduction to the ancient Aztec civilisation of Mexico. Each of its two-page chapters is well-illustrated with excellently-produced colourful artwork and photographs. The craft-based chapters show you how to make paper-copies of Aztec items, though you have to draw them yourself rather than follow a template. This would be an ideal introductory volume for schoolchildren to the history of the Aztecs, as well as a source of craft-related activities.
