Year 5

Year 6


SKU: T56IL401002

This Aztec Calendar KS2 Art lesson starts by looking at how the Aztecs measured time and takes a close look at the Aztec sunstone to gather ideas for images and patterns.

Your class will then create their own Aztec calendar so that they can measure the days the Aztec way. Is today '2 crocodile', '4 house' or '7 lizard'?! After this lesson your class will be able to tell you! The included slideshow presentation goes through some step-by-step photos for how children can create their own calendars before giving them the chance to have a go for themselves.

A lesson plan, slideshow and printable resources are all included in this Aztec Calendar KS2 planning pack.
