Work to Complete - updated 1st june

Imagine you are a Mayan King, designing a new city from scratch.

Think about who will live in your city, what jobs people would need to do and what buildings they would need.

Main activities

Research one of the Maya cities to help with your design. Think about:

– Layout of the cities

– Recreational, religious and living areas

– Evidence of Maya culture e.g. stelae, writing, astronomical/ceremonial sites

How would you design a city/structure without pack animals, wheels or metal?


Have a look at the learning packs below, as well as guidance for parents (as well as the answers!) The 'Practical Ideas' document is full of fun things you could do.
