Taking inspiration from the Latin word for ‘a reminder’ (monumentum), our history series focuses on some of the world’s greatest – and most mysterious – historical monuments. The monuments featured have linked activities designed to encourage children to reveal the mystery (or not!) behind these landmarks. A snap shot of relevant background information (for teacher reference or to extract and share with your class) and a stunning A4 poster will be provided each month for the monument in focus. This month, we focus on Machu Picchu.
