PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students learn about Mayan writing system, or hieroglyphics, and the codices, which were one place they did their writing. In this assignment, students are directed to create their own Mayan codex with their own original glyphs and translate it as well. A brainstorm for their idea is on the second page of this worksheet. After they brainstorm, they can create a colorful final draft codex using construction paper! This is a nice simple introduction mini-project to Mesoamerica.

Hi Monica, I purchased you power points presentations on Rome and Islam. Do you have any on the Mesoamerica time period? I would be happy to pay for them. The others were very helpful.
On  November 21, 2013Monica Lukins answered:
I'm so happy to be of help! Thank you for the purchases! Unfortunately, I don't have any PowerPoints on Mesoamerica, but I do have a few products at these links:

Thanks for uploading this activity. I'm hoping my students will enjoy it.
On  September 9, 2012Monica Lukins answered:
Yes, me too! My students have always enjoyed this one! Also, one idea is when they are done, have them share with each other (just the picture side first) and have their classmates guess what the story is by looking at the pictures. Thanks for the purchase!
