  • Great resource.  Taught me loads.  However, the powerpoint does not describe all the gods on the activity sheet.  Also, some of the names and images of the gods are not the same as those on the Mayan Gods Word Card resource.  Caused a bit of confusion with our class as we had the word cards on the board to help them.

  • Year 5 Mayan topic - fantastic and just what I was looking for! Thank you for differentiating activities!

    The only issue I'm experiencing is that text on the PP presentations seems to overlap and I need to move it on every slide.

    • Hi there,

      Thanks for commenting!

      I've just had a look at this and it seems to be displaying ok for me. Did the text overlap in the standard view, or when viewing as a slideshow?

  • As I know almost nothing about the Mayans, I now feel equipped to teach it!!

In this lesson the children will learn all about the religious beliefs of the ancient Maya people. They will find out about some of the main Maya gods and create their own fact files about them. The children also have the opportunity to test their knowledge by taking part in a Maya religion quiz. Made in conjunction with Dr. Diane Davies, Specialist and Consultant on the Maya - www.mayaarchaeologist.co.uk
