|In this lesson, students analyze a set of pictograph documents created by native peoples of Puebla, Mexico in 1531. Then they take on the role of historians, studying the documents, decoding images, tabulating quantities of goods paid to the local government, and creating a scenario to explain what these documents were for, who created them, and why. Designed to take place over three class periods, this teacher-made lesson includes extension activity suggestions.|
