The Maya Civilization

Subject: History
Age Group: 7-11 Year Olds (KS2)
Available in London, North West, South West, and West Midlands
Journeying around the Mayan city-state of Palenque, your pupils will learn about the people, religion and culture of this ancient civilisation and consider what eventually led to its collapse.

The facilitator is in role as the Time Traveller, and the children have to show their knowledge by passing tasks related to the topic in order to graduate as Time Travellers themselves.

"Children loved this session and were taking what they had learnt from this out into the playground during their break times and were creating their own Mayan games."
