Marvelous Mayas!

Introduction to the Mayas

Introduction to the Mayas 1

This week Year 4 started their study of the Mayan civilisation

We studied maps showing the Central American countries where societies of this ancient civilisation settled. We discussed the geographical features of these countries, why the Mayas settled here and how they cleverly found inventive ways to overcome the adverse weather in this part of the world, where we learnt there are 37 volcanoes!

We sampled some of the foods found in these countries, such as tortilla (corn was one of their main crops), tomatoes, chocolate and looked at chillies, but didn't sample these!
