Students will learn about the impact of colonisation on the indigenous peoples of North and Central America, and will explore the concept of colonisation and how it relates to the colonisation of the North-American Indians and the Aztecs.
Big ideas/key concepts
The key concepts I want students to learn are that:
understanding the nature of history, past societies and periods and their legacy helps us to understand the modern world;
Indigenous people lived in Central and North America before European explorers arrived;
the indigenous cultures of North and Central America have been severely affected by colonisation.
