Activities for Spanish Explorers

  1. Write the explorers' names on the time line.

  2. Make a gold medallion. Place a piece of waxed paper on a flat surface. With glue draw a thick outline of a design onto the waxed paper. Designs should be related to explorers and natives. Completely cover the outlines with gold or silver glitter. After the medallion dries thoroughly carefully peel it away from the waxed paper.

  3. Compare the armor and weapons of the Spanish to the clothing and weapons the Aztecs had.
