Students will take onthe role of being either a member of Hernan Cortes' soldiers or one of the religious leaders that accompanied them. Through the eyes of their chosen role, the students will be discovering the New World, the Aztec culture, and their Empire. A diary will be created from the view point of the role they chose. Once all information has been collected, the students will find a partner that chose a different role to make hypothesises about the Aztecs.
I created this website as a class project. While doing this, I learned a lot and look forward to creating more activities like this one. Please feel free to look this webquest over and modify it as you see fit. I feel it has a lot of potential to address several significant moments in history.
