Educator Resources for Inca Civilization

In the centuries before Columbus arrived in the Americas, the Inca people built the largest empire in the Western Hemisphere. Centered in Peru, it spanned thousands of miles and included millions of citizens. And in the BrainPOP movie on the Incas, you’ll learn exactly what made this civilization so great. With the help of a friendly llama, Tim and Moby will show you how the Inca Empire was organized, how it was governed, and how it managed to conquer so much territory. You’ll also find out how fewer than 200 Spanish conquistadors managed to bring the mighty empire to its knees. So before you go on that trip to Machu Picchu, check out this movie!
