Inca Discover the Culture & Geography of a Lost Civilization with 25 Projects by Lawrence G. Kovacs, Farah Rizvi

Ages 9 to 12 years. Revealing legends and legacies, this activity book is a fun-filled review of the continent-sprawling ancient Inca culture. The activities, combined with an attractive layout, engage learners on a journey along the Inca Trail including the city of Cuzco and majestic Machu Picchu, built on a jagged ridge thousands of feet above the Urubamba River. Along the way, the beliefs, rituals, scientific advances, and unique system of languages come to life through 25 hands-on projects, such as creating Salar de Uyuni salt crystals and building a tropical cloud forest. This captivating educational tool also features unique illustrations, informative sidebars, fun-fact questions, and vocabulary that will engage learners from start to finish.
