The Aztecs

England, Scotland, Wales

Blood and sacrificial organs, chanting hearty offerings to their Gods! Goodness me ... who were these people they call the Aztecs? This early civilisation definitely weren’t squeamish, but the story of the Aztecs isn’t all guts and gore! Let’s find out about where it all started, and what life would have been life as an Aztec citizen.

Your class will…

  • Explore the achievements of an early civilization, and where and when the Aztecs first appeared
  • Explore the life and times of the Aztecs
  • Explore selected Aztec gods and rituals
  • Have a great day!

One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!

"Both classes thoroughly enjoyed the Aztec workshops - it was very relevant to their learning in class and helped them to work together through drama, producing a really good final production. The classes were well-managed throughout the process and children of all abilities were kept stimulated and involved. They spoke very highly of the day and thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely be in contact for future workshops.
