Students will recreate the Aztec sun stone by telling their own story using emojis. They will draw sketches which will be transferred onto scratch board next class period. This lesson plan is based on the concept of ideograms, which are symbols used to tell a story. The Aztecs included many ideograms, as this was a part of their written language. Emojis are essentially ideograms of the 21st century.
