This Inca art primary resource gives children an opportunity to practise their own Inca-style carvings, inspired by the Inca Empire of South America.

Pupils will be challenged to follow instructions to make and design their own ‘Inca soap sculptures’, and adapt those instructions for their own creativity in our National Geographic Kids’ Art and History primary resource sheet.

The teaching resource can be used as a printed handout for instruction in class time, or for display on the interactive whiteboard.

Activity: Ask children to research Inca art and sculptures and design their own Inca-style carving of a face on a piece of paper. Pupils should then complete the task on the page, adapting it for their own individual design with different shapes, patterns and embellishments. Children could use their work as a starting point for investigating the meaning and purpose of Ancient Inca art.

In planning and guiding children’s activities, practitioners must reflect on the different ways that children learn and reflect these in their practice. Three characteristics of effective teaching and learning are:

  • active learning — children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements
  • creating and thinking critically — children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things.
