Why should we learn about the Maya? - Sep 13, 2022


To start our new History unit linked the Maya, we had our first enquiry question to answer, ‘Why should we learn about the Maya?’ After learning a little about the time period and location of the civilisation, we were given a set of images to investigate on our tables to explore what we could infer and find out about them. We were great historians, as we were able to link our tables findings to others to create a clearer picture. Following this, we were asked to persuade a school to learn about the Maya, using our findings we placed them on a spectrum of not important to very important to help our argument of the importance of the civilisation. It is clear to say we ended the lesson with a lot more admiration for the Maya than when we started!
