Investigate the Aztec calendar then create a fictional scroll calendar with details of an imaginary trip to Mexico.
Invite students to use teacher-approved Internet resources to investigate the Aztec calendar. Ask students to specifically research the symbols for each day. Students draw the symbols using Crayola® Construction Paper Crayons.
Using Crayola Scissors, students cut large sheets of construction paper in half to make two long rectangular pieces. Put Crayola School Glue along one short edge and glue the sheets together to form a long calendar.
Students cut two strips of cardboard longer than the short ends of the calendar. Glue one to each end of the long sheet to form scroll handles. Allow to dry overnight.
Ask students to divide the page into the number of day of their Mexican journey using Crayola Fine Tip Markers and a ruler.
Once their scrolls are complete, students assist each other with rolling up the scroll by turning the cardboard strip handles simultaneously toward the middle. Anchor it to the back using adhesive tape.
Each day on an imaginary trip to Mexico, students add sketches and descriptions of the people, art, foods, architecture, music, etc. to their calendars.
Encourage students to share their completed calendar scrolls with parents, explaining the meaning of each symbol and sketch.
