Ancient Mayans


This week we are going to focus on the Mayan writing system. Here are your tasks:


1) Watch the attached power point on the Mayan writing system and then carry out some extra research if you would like to. Using the information you find create a fact file about the Mayan writing system. Make sure you include information about codices, syllabograms, glyphs and logograms.


2) Make up some logograms or syllabograms of your own. Have fun with this; you could present them on a poster like the ones shown in the power point.


There is also a non-fiction reading comprehension task to complete this week which is all about Mayan writing. Look in the English area to find it.
