What happens if the kids don't listen

Inca society

Nobles

nobles wore ear lobe

Farmers

worked hard

they had a canal that led it to the terraces

they dealt with frost and drought

War/Military

had their own store houses throughout their land to keep weapons and food that they would need.

Made up of.... farmers (part-time), bodyguards (full-time) and relatives of the rulers (made the big decisions, leaders)

building

they also built roads

officials traveled on these roads

thousands of miles

messengers run on the road, the messengers would run to a station, the runners would tell each other a messege and the second runner would run

The Inca were amazing at building.

they used bronze chivel

no walls fell down that is how good they are at building

Inca canals led to the terraces

Inca contrustion

they made a canal that led them to the terraces

they made statues

they did not have that many farmland in the Andis mountains so they had to cut off some of the land and they had to make terraces

enviorment struggles

they had bad soil and they had to deal with droughts

thoughts we had

we thought that they probably expanded because they had to take so much land for the crops they took from the villagers

the inca were smart and creative

inventions

they made a system for the messangers

they invented terraces for farmland

they invented another system that if there was an emergency they were to light a fire near a mountain and everyone would know if someone was invading

they invented a gold rattle snake
