Class Experience

Students will learn to how the ancient civilization of the Maya contributed to today's society.  
I have been a teacher for 22 years. Out of those 22 years, I was a world cultures and Spanish teacher for 7 years. Those were fun years. Students were able to have fun in the lesson. We learned about different cultures and played games that other cultures played. I also had the opportunity to visit some of the Mayan ruins in Mexico. I have a World Cultures license and a Spanish certification.
Each student will bring a picture (digital or printed) of one of the Mayan structures found in Central America.
 3 files available upon enrollment
Paper and Pencil (Student will learn the Maya number system and learn to count using their symbols.) Watch this video before class. If possible, google Mayan structures and bring a printout. Tell us the name of the structure/building. Have another device/cell ready to play Kahoot at the end of class.
We will play a Kahoot game at the end of class to test our knowledge about the Mayan Civilization.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
