Scheme of Work: Maya

Scheme of Work

Dr Diane Davies, last updated: 13th January 2015

In this unit pupils will learn about the remarkable achievements of the ancient Maya. Through these activities pupils will learn about the Maya perspective of time, the calendar system, writing, maths and the environment.  In doing so they should see the stark contrast between their own history and that of the Maya.  Aside from learning about Maya culture, the unit will encourage pupils to move away from the tendency in applying one's own cultural values in judging the behaviour and beliefs of people raised in other cultures. Instead, pupils will be aware of the different (though not inferior) ways of doing things and the complexity of human life. This scheme of work was written by Dr Diane Davies (Maya Archaeologist)
