Ancient Maya - Food
This week we are going to look at Mayan food.
1) Firstly, look at the attached power point and video clip https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-ks3-what-did-the-maya-eat/zkxc8xs about Mayan food and then carry out some extra research if you would like to. Using the information that you find, create a fact file or piece of persuasive writing comparing the importance of corn vs chocolate to the Maya. A sheet is enclosed containing three levels of difficulty, which can help you plan and present your work. You do not have to use it.
2) Extension - can you find some other traditional Maya recipes and, with parent/carer permission, create your own Maya feast using tortillas or chocolate? Recipes are found below.
