The Maya

This term year 5/6R have been learning about the ancient civilisation of the Maya. Throughout these terms we have been reasearching many facts about the Mayans. The ancient Maya lived around 4,000 years ago and had many different Gods for many different things, these include Gods like Chacc, the God of thunder and rain. In the Mayan civilisation there were different positions, the highest being a priest and the lowest is a slave, but there were many in between this.

They lived in reigons of Mexica and Central America sometimes next to the sea, hence the fishing jobs. They grew coucou and corn, the kings had hot chocolate {chocolate in hot water} and the slaves had corn drinks. We will be adding different facts to this page as we finish our work.
