We met that John Lloyd Stephens, a famous American explorer. He'd built a time machine that can take us back to the Ancient Mayan Civilisation. It is a very mysterious time in history as nobody really knows what happened to the Mayans. By travelling back in time, We're hoping to find out some more about them.
Do you want to come with us to learn about them?
Our adventure began when we met John Lloyd Stephens, an American explorer.
He explained that he had a time machine that could take us back to the Ancient Mayan civilisation and asked us if we wanted to join him. However, the time machine was in Central America so we had to work out how we would get there and how long it would take.
We learnt about time zones and how they would affect the time we arrived.
We also completed a Burn 2 Learn to find out the names and locations of countries in Central America.
During our first editing Lesson, we read a paragraph about Mayan headdresses. We had to highlight and annotate all the good features before we designed our own.
We chose whether we were designing one for a priest, craftsman or warrior.
With our designs complete, it was time to create our headdresses. It was quite a messy job!
