Interview with the Mayas, Aztecs and Incas Play
This play was written for 6th grade students to perform after studying about the Inca, Aztec and Mayan empires and their conquest by the Spanish. The number of parts can be combined if needed. A powerpoint presentation was used as a background on a big screen instead of creating large backdrops. Students created costumes by sewing canvas together and then painting it with designs typical to each Indian group. The inside bladder of an old volleyball (they are black) was used to represent the rubber ball used in the Indian games.
