Yesterday Year 4 had a fantastic day exploring the Maya civilization with Dr Diane!
We began by thinking about where the Maya people lived... the rainforest! We even saw some of the deadly creatures that live there too! We learned all about the temples and buildings and enjoyed hearing about the history of chocolate!
Then we became archaeologists and studied some very old artefacts. We had to think about what the artefact was made from, what is was used for and who it belonged to.
Finally, we learned about the Maya number system and created our own Maya calendars (which were very complicated)!
