5th Grade Codex Project

5th Codex

Wheeler Elementary students in Mr. Michael's 5th grade reading class recently completed a unit study of the early American civilizations.  Students studied the Maya, Aztec, and Inca societies.  A timeline of each group was created to aid in understanding how long each civilization existed along with pictures and an in-depth research of how each group adapted to their environments.  Pictured are Paige Turner, Finley Reed, Malachi Hughes, Jaclyn Thomas, and Autumn Brewer showcasing their "Codex Project" with their completed research. (A codex is an ancient Mayan book.)
