Zapotec Ruins of Monte Albans

Your little one learned about the ancient city of Oaxaca with this fun activity. Perchep atop a hillside, the Zapotec Ruins of Monte Albans house a city of Meso-American pyramids. These flat-topped structures provided shelter for the ancient Aztec peoples of Mexico.


To help your little one connect to this fascinating culture, they created their own pyramids out of specially-made blocks. One of the characteristics that contributes significantly to your little ones’ cognitive development, is the ability to fabricate an image they can replicate through construction.


Nurturing this form of symbolic representation plays a major milestone in your budding builder’s development. Building, balancing, and ordering through play provides a foundation for more abstract mathematical reasoning.
