The first inhabitants of the American continents were nomadic
hunters and gathers. These nomads probably arrived in North
America around 40,000 years ago, following a land bridge that
formed between North America and Asia.

This movie shows why the Maya civilization wasn’t exactly an empire, but still constituted a
unified culture. Included also is information about the Maya script and the role of religion in
Maya society, explaining how it drove advances in architecture, math, art, and astronomy.
This movie will show you how the Inca Empire was organized, how it was governed, and how
it managed to conquer so much territory.
This movie will show you an up-close look at this powerful Mesoamerican civilization. See
how a handful of scattered nomadic tribes in the Valley of Mexico came together to build a
massive empire. Explore the capital city of Tenochtitlan, built on an island in the middle of a
lake. Learn about all sorts of Aztec customs, from the fun (a ballgame called tlachtli) to the
frightening (human sacrifice!). And witness the fall of the mighty empire at the hands of a
Spanish conquistador named Hernán Cortés.

The ''mysterious Maya'' were an impressive civilization, one of the earliest to settle in the
Americas. Although historians don't know why the civilization failed, they do know that it
spanned 3,000 years and had a population of about 15 million people. Established in what is
now part of Mexico and Central America, the Maya built great cities, temples and pyramids,
and were quite advanced in engineering and astronomy. Students will learn about Mayan
religious beliefs, hieroglyphs, inventions, the people, food and culture. Hosted by the intriguing
archeologist, Arizona Smith, and his young detective-in-training, the program includes a
teacher's guide featuring additional information on the topic, vocabulary words, discussion
questions, follow-up activities and lists of recommended books and Internet resources.
In 1839 the lost city of Copan was discovered by American explorer John Lloyd Stephens.
Sometimes called the 'Athens of the New World,' Copan flourished for some 300 years until the
ninth century A.D. Artwork and hieroglyphics found in Copan's stone monuments provide
valuable clues to this once thriving city. Archaeologists and scholars are creating a vision of an
ancient past, trying to understand how this civilization flourished and what brought about its
destruction.

The essential question for this unit of study on Geography and Early Peoples of the
Western Hemisphere is “How did geography influence the development of the
Western Hemisphere?”
http://www.darke.k12.oh.us/curriculum/SocialStudies/GeoEarlyPeopleWHemis.pdf
In this movie, you will discover the meaning of geography and think about some of the ways
in which location, place, region, movement, and environment interact to produce unique
geography. You’ll also find out how understanding the geography of a place can teach you
about its culture and history, and why the movement of people around the world can impact
the characteristics of the globe.
