Our Manifesto project is our final project, where students create a one-minute film sharing what they believe to be true about life, humanity, and everything.
In Mission Mexica, students are acting as secret agents called Pochteca (a Nahuatl word that referred to long-distance messengers, who also sometimes acted as spies), employed by The Empire Elite, an organization dedicated to repatriating stolen art and artefacts.
Mission: Mexica is a game-based approach to learning about worldviews before, during, and after the the Spanish conflict with the Mexica (Aztec) people in Mesoamerica.
