Week 1

Ancient Maya


We are continuing our Ancient Maya topic this term and focusing more on the history of the Maya. This week, the children discussed the social structure of the Ancient Maya. We compared this to our own social structure today and noticed some similarities and some differences. The children had a range of opinions on how fair society is today and how fair it was in Ancient Maya times. The children worked in groups to explore different roles in Ancient Maya times, such as kings, nobles and slaves. They presented their research and decided which social class they would like to belong to if they were an Ancient Maya.
