For the start of our project ‘Hola Mexico’ we started to explore the world of the Ancient Maya. Firstly we shared our homework projects – creating a piñata.
Then we created a mind map to reflect what we already know and what we would like to find out during the project.
After that, we explored the subject of food and drink and had the opportunity to recreate Maya Hot Chocolate and Maya Tortillas. We followed the instructions and calculated the quantities that we needed byusing ratios.
We watched and discussed the National Geographic film ‘ The Dawn of the Maya’, which documented the discovery of Ancient Maya cities and artefacts. We started to think about the areas we would like to research for our non-chronological reports when we will become 'experts' and present to the rest of our class.
